Unfortunately I know very little about Korean artist Minjeong An (her website is currently down), but these are just a few of her incredibly complex self-portraits illustrated using some kind of information visualization. My guess is she’s using a mix of actual data, or a perceived translation of sensory input along with simply beautiful drawings. You can see a bit more on Prosthetic Knowledge and 50 Watts.
