scientists have figured out that they can carve holes, known as fistulas, leading into one of the many stomachs of a cow.  somehow, the cows can continue to live with holes exposing their digestive system.  these fistulas allow you to see directly into the cow stomach and even remove pieces of food from the digestive tract in order to study the digestive process.  freaky.

alain paiement’s images are constructed by stitching together a series of a photographs taken from over head.  its as if a giant saw were used to pop off your roof and allow the world to peer in and see whats digesting inside.

notes:

[1]     alain paiement sites oulipo as a major influence of his work.  so i’ve used this n+7 machine (an exercise in which you substitute every noun with the 7th noun preceding it in the dictionary) to turn his bio into a oulipo experiment.  the n+7 machine will give you all possible permutations from n+1 to n+15.  the title is actually n+9.
