Remember this gif? The one that’s been going around mislabeled as a full-body MRI?
Check this out.
The animation represents the entire data set (1,871 slices) of the male cadaver from the Visible Human Project. The animation was played fullscreen on a portable monitor, which was moved around by an assistant while being photographed in a dark environment. The resulting images are long-exposure “light paintings” of the entire cadaver. Variations in the movement of the computer during each exposure created differences in the shape of the body throughout the series.
Concept by Croix Gagnon and photos by Frank Schott.

This tag is just too perfect.
