Scientific Scans Show Natural Art Inside of Human Bodies

CT-Scan Art

The human body is truly a beautiful thing. But a radiologist in Hong Kong is giving us a view of that beauty that we’ve never seen before. Kai-Hung Fung, working at Pamela Youde Nethersole Easter Hospital, uses CT scans of patients’ body parts, adds color and creates some of the most unique medical art ever.

Fung’s art uses a technique to add color to the pictures that he created himself, which he calls the “rainbow technique.” Other than adding color, he lets the images stand on their own strength without altering them. He has said:  

My goal is to preserve the direct relationship between the data and the artwork. It is a true integration of art, science and technology and can be studied both scientifically and enjoyed as a visual art.

The profits from the award-winning art are all donated to charity.

Painting technique that pushes the boundaries of perception.

Looking at paintings, done by artists who have passion for what they do, is always a pleasure.  Art creates a response in all of us, either a happy or amazed feeling or even gloomy feelings, either way, we are somehow always left with a touch of  ‘Magic’ in our memory.

Alexa-Acrylic Self Portrait.

Today we found and interviewed Alexa Meade, she is a 23-year-old woman who grew up in the Washington, DC area.  Alexa has been crafting her skills with painting on living subjects as well as painting on inanimate objects. Take a close look at the Photo’s below and…yes, take a second look

The idea for painting directly on the subject has been germinating since August 2008. By May 2009, this painting technique evolved, creating the effect you see now. There are two series of paintings: “Living Paintings,” consisting of acrylic renderings directly on flesh, and “Living Still Lifes,” comprising paintings on inanimate objects. Many of my installations are a combination of the two.

 

My painting technique pushes the boundaries of perception, compressing 3D space into a 2D plane and effectively blurring the lines between art and life. Typically, when you look at a painting, you’re looking at an artist’s interpretation of the subject painted on canvas. In my artistic interpretation of the subject, I paint directly on top of the subject I am referencing rather than using canvas. Essentially, my art imitates life – on top of life.  For example, with Portrait of a Self-Portrait you are simultaneously looking at a portrait I painted of myself, a photo I took of myself, and at me.

My projects spin reality. A major concept I have applied from my experience in political communications to my art is that what one experiences cannot always be interpreted at face value; seeing is not necessarily believing.  By wrapping my subject in a mask of paint, I skew the way that the core of the subject is perceived.

High Speed Photography : Frozen in Time

A little while ago, we published a few articles about High-frame-rate filming and animations and high-exposure photography and their effects on the final result. Stunning to say the least! Now, over at hongkiat.com we found this Graphical bliss, high-speed photography. See and read for yourself and enjoy this treat for the eye.

 
In a blink of the eye, a lot can happen. A lot of astonishing things happen in a split of a second, but they are moving too quickly for us to see.

 

High speed photography is the art of photographing a rapidly occurring event.

 
Depending on the event to be photographed, methods range from use of ultra-short time flash exposures to producing lots of exposures in a split-second. Seemingly frozen in time, a lot of photographers have their own special method doing high speed photography. The usual photographic flash component offers a flash that lasts around a thousandth of a second (a millisecond). But photographic flash component used in high speed photography is so much quicker than this, and it creates a flash of light around a microsecond (a millionth of a second). This let you to freeze time through pictures that are happening tremendously fast.
 
It’s not easy to come up with a perfect shot while capturing rapidly occurring event, photographers that specialize in this type of photography are masters of patience. Below are some incredibly cool images that shows the beautiful combination of artistic expression and technical precision.

Architecture Photography: Beauty of Interior and Exterior Designs

American architect Julia Morgan once said, “Architecture is a visual art, and the buildings speak for themselves.“.

Indeed, architecture serves as a voice to express the artistic stance of the architect at that time. Photography takes a step further to interpret architecture in several ways. What used to be an accurate portrayal of the structure has now gradually evolved into a manipulation of different perspectives to bring out the interesting elements of a single structure. The art of photographing architecture takes on many forms. Whether it is photographing the exterior or interior, many awesome images can be resulted with the correct techniques and more importantly, the observant eye to spot the different points of view.

===============================================================================

Like other types of photography, what lies ahead is always a series of challenges for photographers before an excellent shot is taken. However, there are two main challenges in architecture photography – Lighting and Image distortion. When photographing the exterior, natural lighting is all you have got and you have to capture the building at its most glamorous moment. Image distortion occurs when the building has lines running horizontally and vertically and they appear distorted. The right equipment and the right angles would prevent that pitfall.

Interior architecture with repeating patterns and geometric shapes is a bonus to photographers.

Employing the use of different camera angles would reveal the beauty of these designs. Architecture with unique and unusual structures also tend to catch our attention. We can’t help but start to ponder how it was made (or maybe built) possible. Photography comes into play as it does justice to impressive architecture.

Mozart Of Lights

Sometimes we come across some nice ideas and designs. Today we want to feature a hugely fascinating light-concept-design by Seo Dong-Hun. It’s a marvelous Futuristic work of Art.

”So you can’t be a conductor of any musical symphony nor do you have any creativity in painting and art. Tough luck, but what if I gave you this magical wand, that allowed you to transform your ceiling into a magical landscape of color LEDs, that brighten up and dim at the flick of your wrist, wouldn’t you be the Mozart of lights? Draw The Lights makes you a capable light conductor! What I mean is that clusters of LEDs take command from this “light brush” in your hand, and sparkle to create mesmerizing ambient settings. If creativity gets the better of you, how about creating artwork with the lights?”

 Fancy!
