Artwork: INTIMATE PERIL light boxes

"Intimate Peril" is based on the body scan devices that are now being employed at airports. These devices are able to look underneath an individual’s clothing and reveal the contours of a person’s body. The device has caused some controversy because of its invasive nature. But as revealing as the devices are, they do little to reveal the personal nature of the individuals they scan. My idea was to use these scans and present them in a manner that examines the social and cultural ramifications of this particular method of promoting safety.
