Nuclear Safety Authority Ban X-Ray Photograph Art

May 24, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

The Nuclear Safety Authority in France came down on the usage of X-Ray machines in art. This decision came following an exhibition titled Hand Games by French artist  Marc Ferrante, featuring some 100 radiographic images of participants’ hands.

The ASN recalled that Public Health Code prohibits the use of ionizing radiation for non-medical purposes under Article L1333-11 and…

Although the doses received by the volunteers are not likely to have a significant impact on health, they must never be administered without medical justification.

The ASN isn’t pleased, specifically with the organizations that aided in the creation of these images. Womp womp. (Images: ASN/Marc Ferrante)
