Neuroanatomy drawn in blood

Neurofuture’s Sandra Kiume, who seems to have a knack for discovering striking neuroart projects, has picked up on some pieces by Laura Splan, who has produced detailed neuroanatomy images drawn with her own blood.

Thought Patterns is a series of images inspired by neuroanatomical structures. Each drawing was created using blood taken from my fingertips as the primary medium. The series explores the relationship between the images being depicted and the source of the medium with which they are drawn. I was drawn to these images as a formal exploration of the elements of our body that tell us we sense pain or pleasure.

Wow. There’s more at the links below.
