thinking beauty

28 Feb

i’m into this computer-simulated beautiful image of pyramidal neurons, part of the wellcome image awards.

the geometry and the primal hues, together with the root-like extremities make them like trees in an eerie techni-colour, after-dark forest.

this marriage of nature, science and beauty also reminds me of the work on malformed toads by environmental artist brandon ballengee, which showed a while back at the royal institution in london.

ballengee documents the parasite-related malformations, then stains the frogs and scans them, resulting in beautiful, haunting images.

this image called prometheus is still blue-tacked on my bathroom wall.
