Anatomical Neon: Blown Glass Human Organs Containing Neon Lights by Jessica Lloyd-Jones

March 26, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Anatomical Neon is a series of blown glass lights by North Wales-based artist Jessica Lloyd-Jones meant to focus attention on how energy is used by the human body. Describing the four pieces via her website she says:

Brain Wave conveys neurological processing activity as a kinetic and sensory, physical phenomena through its display of moving electric plasma. Optic Nerve shows a similar effect, more akin to the blood vessels of the eye and with a front ‘lens’ magnifying the movement and the intensity of light. Heart is a representation of the human heart illuminated by still red neon gas. Electric Lungs is a more technically intricate structure with xenon gas spreading through its passage ways, communicating our human unawareness of the trace gases we inhale in our breathable atmosphere.

The pieces were funded in part by awards from Arts Council Wales and Wales Arts International and executed at Urban Glass in New York in 2010. (via pinterest)

A Skull of Books

March 25, 2012

I just spotted this new work-in-progress by one of my favorite artists Maskull Lasserre (previously). Incarnate (Three Degrees of Certainty II) is nearly perfect rendering of a human skull from a thick stack of outdated computer manuals. Looking at these particular titles I can’t help but think these books have been called to a much higher purpose.

A number of wonderful anatomical pieces by Montreal-based architect Federico Carbajal who uses galvanized wire, stainless steel and acrylic to make these pieces he refers to as “spatial sketches”. Beautiful work. (via street anatomy)

Skull Portraits by Carsten Witte

February 22, 2012

Christopher Jobson

A number of decidedly unsettling portraits from Hamburg-based photographer Carsten Witte from his series Intuition (nsfw). Of the series he says: “One main idea behind my work is the belief that everything is constantly changing but photography can preserve the moment. Beauty is almost nothing without the knowledge of how fast it will fade…” (via behance)

Pinned Skin Collages by David Adey

February 20, 2012

Christopher Jobson







Using carefully cut fragments of printed skin from the photographs of celebrities in popular magazines, artist David Adey creates elaborate, pinned collages reminiscent of the most complex entomological displays. In some instances he reconstructs the original photos using component pieces cut into myriad geometric shapes and symbols, each placed perfectly on the canvas with a single pin. Other times he creates giant whirling textures as with his piece Swarm, a process that can take up to 200-300 hours. The patience required for all of this simply boggles the mind. Adey currently has a solo show at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. (via lustik)
