Murderer's ghostly image captured in long exposure shot


In 1993, convicted murderer Joseph Jernigan was executed in texas and his body donated to science. It was preserved in gelatin and sliced into 1,871 sections. Scans of these sections were strung together into an animation, and played back on a computer screen as it was swept across the field of a long-exposure camera shot. The result is these strange and haunting images of Jernigan's ghost, floating in the twilight. More images can be found here, created by Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott.

I am sure I will see this on SyFy channel with someone trying to debunk this ghostly phenomenon. As art it is interesting though.
