Bone Art by Francois Robert
Screw being buried or cremated when I die donate my bones to photographer Francois Robert and have him turn me into art.
"In the mid-90’s, during an auction from an old school, I purchased 3 metal lockers and to my surprise one of them held a real, full size articulated skeleton," he says. "For years I had it displayed in one of the rooms in my studio and I often wondered what else I could do with it. Finally the idea came to me to explore the idea of disassembling the skeleton and rearranging the bones, and from that process came the series 'Stop the Violence.'”
