Have you ever broken a bone, had an x-ray, and thought the photo was actually quite cool? Swedish [2] design students Sture Pallarp [3], Elin Hedlund [4] and Emmelie Karlström [5], took the x-ray aesthetic [6] to a whole new level and incorporated the film into a lighting fixture. Their X-ray Lamp [7] is a conceptual approach that leaves much to imagination. It’s also an easy project for anyone looking for a fun DIY [8] project for Halloween. Just make sure to break a funny [9] bone!
