Finger On the Pulse of the Criminal Mystique

2012 ArtPrize Entry

Michael has selected three famous gangsters with connections to West Michigan (Al Capone, John Dillinger, and Babyface Nelson). Each of the three portraits on paper is a blended pixelation of fingerprints on a scale of 3 x 5 feet. The fingerprints used to create the images relate to the forensics of identifying criminals and their deeds.
