Andy Curlowe. Don’t know much about him but I like his use of collage looking works. I also like all the colorful geometric shapes and spaces he creates with them. There is a good sense of depth which I appreciate because I’m trying to figure out how to add more depth into my own work. There’s a reference to Marina Abramović’s Rest Energy with Ulay thAt I don’t really understand right now but find it interesting.
Lisa Sanditz, incredible. my new favorite.
I don’t know where the photo on the left came from but I know I found it when researching neuron activity in the brain and the one on the right is an optic nerve I think. Fascinating.

This cross-sectional microscopic drawing of the nerve cells in the retina was made by Santiago Ramon y Cajal, the greatest neuroanatomist of all time. From the top, where the slender rods and fatter cones are shown, to the bottom, where optic nerve fibers lead off to the right, the retina measures one-quarter millimeter.
Comparative study of the sensory areas of the human cortex: »Left: Nissl-stained visual cortex of a human adult.>Middle: Nissl-stained motor cortex of a human adult.>Right: Golgi-stained cortex of a 1 1/2 month old infant. Drawing by Santiago Ramon y Cajal. Love this
Done in the same study as the “brainbow.” Geoff lichtman. See are the fibres of a mouse brain. Is shows that inside the brain is not a mass of tangled wires, rather ther the brains connections turn out to be more like “ribbon cables” - van weeden f massechusets general hospital.
"Brainbow" a map of connecting nerve cells of the brain. shows patterns of fibers interconnecting to form a 3D brain. Insight into the pathways of human brains 100 billion cells and how they work. Brain map. By Jeff Lichtman of Harvard university. The ability to trace these connections between nerve cells means that defects in you’re nervous system could eventually be easier to detect which could further help understand certain disorders like anxiety and depression. taken with a state of the art MRI scanner.
Brain cells firing. In a mouse. Neurons at work.
Olaf Hajek. Love his illustrations. I really want a tattoo of this lady. too bad I can’t find more info on this one in particular. If anyone knows more about it let me know.
