Veins

This project was inspired by a personal medical event of a blood clot that occurred in my arm. From this I looked into combining physical and digital techniques in photography to create photos that layer lomo double exposures and laser cutting. I used tree branches to double expose over body parts to visually mimic veins. As well as laser etching the parts of the branch overlapping the body and injecting red dye into the etched layer.

Once this was sandwiched together it created the resulting images that show dye leaking from the etched areas onto the printed image.
