Convicted murderer Joseph Paul Jernigan was executed in Texas on August 5, 1993, at 12:31. Jernigan donated his body to science, and it was sliced into 1,871 milimeter-thick segments. Now a new photo project puts him back together.
As a ghost.
Project 12:31, named after Jernigan’s time of death, involves showing each segment of his body on a laptop screen, and photographing the results in long exposure. The glowing laptop images of Jernigan’s body result in weirdly distorted images of his corpse, appearing to float spectrally through various landscapes.
