X-ray Loomi Light

I bought a Loomi light (left) on Kickstarter last year. It’s made out of 30 paper sheets, cut in a somewhat peculiar shape. It’s easy to assemble (check out the instructions on the Loomi website if you’re interested) and it looks great.

I got so intrigued that I started thinking about the other possible materials the light could be made of. So this is what I came up with.
It’s made out of 30 hand-cut real x-ray photographs, formerly used for medical diagnoses in hospitals. It shows several different body parts, including hands, fingers, feet and even some spines and skulls. Some of the sheets are still recognizable as such, but others have become more abstract shapes (particularly the forearms and collarbones). The X-ray Loomi is about 70 percent the size of the original one, to adapt to the various sizes of x-ray sheets.

I really like that it seems like a solid black shape when switched off and shows some intriguing (and, admitted, a bit eerie) shapes when switched on.
