This false-coloured scanning electron micrograph shows connective tissue removed from a human knee during arthroscopic surgery. Individual fibres of collagen can be distinguished and have been highlighted by the creator using a variety of colours. The horizontal field width of the image is 16 microns.
Science is lovely in silk (at least it is in the hands of Karen Kamenetzky).
Kamenetzky on her work:
I dye, paint and stitch cottons and silks to create boldly colored wallhangings inspired by microscopic/cellular imagery - a kind of visual invented biology with textiles. I find this imagery metaphorically rich since all change fundamentally happens on this infinitesimal level.
a little more weekend art, hunger games style!
Weekend Art: Anastamosis via Street Anatomy
Illustrator, dissector, and physician, Dr. Frank Scali, created this piece inspired by the anatomical definition of anastomosis.
Scali says of his piece,
“The female portrays the superficial venous blood flow, the male depicts deep arterial blood flow. Together they form the complete circulatory system. Anastomosis is the term used in anatomy when two blood vessels connect and literally means to “open” or to “kiss.””

Taken from one of my favorite sites, Street Anatomy! Happy weekend, all. :)
