Artist Loren Stump specializes in a form of glasswork called murrine, where rods of glass are melted together and then sliced to reveal elaborate patterns and forms. While the murrina process appeared in the Mideast some 4,000 years ago, Stump has perfected his own technique over the past 35 years to the point where he can now layer entire portraits and paintings in glass before slicing them to see the final results.
This is a 3D print of Vincent Van Gogh’s severed ear. It was made using cells from his great-grandson [EDIT: actually his great-great-grand-nephew], Lieuwe van Gogh.
If you’re in Germany, you can stop by and whisper in it.
(Also pterosaurs, which I just learned about and which are super cool.)
Over his thirty years in the hobby, American photographer Mo Devlin has successfully bred many of the Central and South American cichlid fishes. His passion for the aquarium hobby is only rivaled by his love of photography. Recently he develops the love of taking pictures of frozen flowers with a macro lens to create abstract compositions. He captures different patterns, light, texture and details of each frozen flower. (src. Artist’s biography & Fubiz)
