Floral anatomy from artist Camila Carlow’s project Eye Heart Spleen
Carlow on her project:
The most fascinating and intricate of biological structures, yet we rarely pay heed to the organs inside our body. Regardless of whether we fill ourselves with toxins or nourishing food, whether we exercise or not - our organs sustain us, working away effortlessly and unnoticed.
In a similar way, plants flourishing in the urban environment are a testament to nature’s indifference to our goings on. They grow out of the sides of buildings, in brick walls and between the cracks in concrete, despite of the traffic and pollution.

DIY Crochet Frog and Goldfish Large Coin Purses’ Pattern from Laura Sutcliffe on Ravelry. $3.52 per pattern and Ravelry is a signup site with lots of free and pay patterns. First seen on inspiration & realisation’s FB page. Friendly Note to Make/craftzine: When you credit a blog on Tumblr, credit the original poster and not the reblogger (I credit your blog if I saw a DIY there first). It’s really easy to find the original Tumblr poster.
This one made me gigle :)

Science + Art = Awesome
We’ve seen adorable plush microbes and we remember making models of microbes out of candy as school projects, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen the nasty little buggers exquisitely rendered in blown glass.
These beautiful hand-blown glass sculptures are the work of UK-based artist Luke Jerram, who has produced an entire series depicting microbes that cause different infectious diseases entitled Glass Microbiology. Here you see E. coli, HIV, Malaria, Swine Flu, and Enterovirus 71.
"Made to contemplate the global impact of each disease, the artworks were created as alternative representations of viruses to the artificially coloured imagery we receive through the media. In fact, viruses have no colour as they are smaller than the wavelength of light. By extracting the colour from the imagery and creating jewel like beautiful sculptures in glass, a complex tension has arisen between the artworks’ beauty and what they represent."
Find it absolutly beautiful. Aldo because i am a geek myself.
