Title • polygraph (3)

While I’m not convinced that anyone else shares my passion for polygraph machines – well, this one at least – I thought I’d post these two anyway. And I do have one more that I’ll use some time over the next couple of days, but that’s it, there’ll be no more after that ;-)

Over the last couple of days I’ve been trying to work out why I’m so drawn to this machine, and I haven’t really been able to come up with an answer. It’s been in our department since I joined eight years ago, and I think that it was used up until fairly recently as an EEG machine – now replaced by a rather boring plastic box hooked up to a computer. And while I think it’s an intrinsically interesting item to photograph, it also seems a really impressive piece of equipment. All that said I think this may just be to do with the fact that it seems i) really well made, and ii) extremely complex ;-)

I did think about posting these two shots as seperate entries but the top one isn’t all that dissimilar from the first one in this series. And I think that the two images work well together but are, perhaps, a little weak on their own.
