X-ray pin-ups in the calendar of medical supply company Eizo

Category : Uncategorized
These x-ray pin-ups (or “x-rayted” pin ups) comprise quite literally the most revealing calender I’ve ever seen.Eizo is a medical supply company that just happens to have a very exotic and creative marketing department. Either that, or a bunch of fashion models are being examined after taking a bad fall on the runway.Although these x-ray pin-ups make up just another calender to make your girlfriend squirm, they offer an interesting take on sex-appeal,comedy and creepiness.

Implications – The X-Ray pin up calendar goes deeper than the usual nude, offering the inside look into the women of your dreams. Peculiar yet interesting, the unique Eizo: Pin-Up Calendar 2010 is certainly worth looking at.































Monika Horcicova Transforms 3D Printed Bones into Art

Category : Uncategorized

Czech Designer Monika Horcicova’s sculpture called ‘The Wheel of Life’ is creepy and beautiful. The artist was inspired by many concepts to create the structure.

Looking like a wheel of bones, the 3D-printed skeletal sculpture takes inspiration from the infinity symbol. The structure is round to represent the cycle of life and death. The wheel is made up of walking legs, which refer to people in motion. Bones are fragile and yet they can carry the human frame through life. Horcicova printed the sculpture in individual pieces and then assembled it.

The structure is morbid, yet it does make you see the beauty of the human body and recognize that even something as basic as bones can be made into something beautiful.

Inner human body in comics: Survive! Inside the Human Body series by Gomdori Co. and Hyun-dong Han.

It’s an graphic novel-style adventure story that takes place inside the human body. The first volume covers the digestive system, and the sequels go on to cover the circulatory and nervous systems.

Scientific information embedded in a deeply engaging story with fun characters and beautiful artwork, all wrapped together with silliness and humor, these books are perfect for a budding scientist who loves comics. You can buy it from No Starch Press:

Anna Dumitriu’s new solo Exhibition “The Romantic Disease: an Artistic Investigation of Tuberculosis”


Opening reception of “The Romantic Disease: An Artistic Investigation of Tuberculosis” – a brand new solo exhibition by Anna Dumitriu showing installations and sculptures made with strains of mycobacteria, transformed historical artefacts, and textiles that our reveal the complexities of Tuberculosis (TB) and our responses to the disease. The show explores the strange history of TB from artistic, social and scientific perspectives and covers subjects such as superstitions about the disease, its literary and romantic associations, the development of antibiotics and the latest research into whole genome sequencing of bacteria.

Artworks in The Romantic Disease” are made with a combination of textile art and biological matter including strains of Mycobacterium vaccae, M. bovis and M. tuberculosis that have been sterilized prior to exhibition. Re-crafted historical artefacts and objects are added to the mix. For example, Dumitriu has developed a series of textile installations stained with bacteria dyes patterned using antibiotic ‘resists’, which focus on how early ‘antibiotics’, such as Prontosil, were derived from chemical dyes. For ”Where there’s dust there’s danger” she has created a series of tiny felt lungs from wool and dust into which she has incorporated the DNA of killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis produced in a Containment Level 3 Laboratory (the highest level for handling bacteria). Around a century ago dust was incorrectly thought to be one of the primary causes of the disease. Amongst the altered historical artefacts an intricately carved and engraved Pneumothorax Machine can be found, previously used to collapse lungs of unfortunate patients ‘to give them a rest’.

The exhibition has been developed through Anna Dumitriu’s ongoing artist’s residency at The University of Oxford with the UK CRC Modernising Medical Microbiology Project, and is funded by The Wellcome Trust.

The show is also open 16th January 2014 – 24th March 2014, daily 12pm (noon) – 9pm

There will also be a major one day symposium on World Tuberculosis Day on 24th March 2014. with key speakers in the field of TB and press conference will be held at Waterman’s for World Tuberculosis Day on 24th March. The latest research into this disease, which currently affects one third of the World’s population, will be discussed in a highly accessible way.

As well as the exhibition and symposium, The Romantic Disease has an ‘open lab’ workshop with Anna Dumitriu, Dr Simon Park, Dr Melissa Grant and special guests. This will run on five Saturdays, 11am – 5pm, on 15th and 22nd February, 1st, 15th and 22nd March 2014 and visitors on those days will see the group at work in the gallery.

Foreign Bodies, Common Ground Exhibition, Wellcome Collection, 14/11/2013 – 09/02/2014

Six artists, six countries.

B-Floor Theatre, Lêna Bùi, Elson Kambalu, Miriam Syowia Kyambi and James Muriuki, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Katie Paterson.

What happens when you set up six artist residencies in different medical research centres throughout the world? This intimate exhibition showcases a diverse body of work from the artists who worked in research centres in Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam and the UK.

The artists were invited to spend at least six months exploring the activity of researchers and produce new work in response to their experiences. The result is a series of moving, challenging and humorous works, richly varied in form and tone. They record journeys taken within the complex realm that lies between scientific processes and local communities, often on the frontlines of communicable diseases.

Please note that the artworks Voracious Embrace and Invisible Currents by Lêna Bùi have been temporarily removed from display for conservation reasons.
