These images are created by positioning deflated and flattened figures directly on a large format photographic paper and exposing them to light. The seams, the result of Streicher?s inflatable fabrication process, create lines that read as various internal systems- musculature, nerves, and veins. These images have the mysterious and puzzling appearance of some unconventional imaging source, of an ultrasound perhaps, or the x-ray of ancient mummified corpse.
