Art made from slices of an executed prisoner

Here’s a series of truly eerie light paintings made with slices of an executed prison inmate who donated his body to science. Joseph Paul Jernigan was executed on August 5, 1993 at exactly 12:31am, hence the name of the project. Using his body to create these images perhaps afford him a bit of post-humous redemption.
