fabric_brain_art.jpgThe Museum of Scientifically Accurate Fabric Brain Art has a collection of scans from brain imaging studies – reproduced as lush hand-stitched fabrics.

The detail on the work is intricate and enthralling, and includes the reinterpretation of both PET and MRI scans.

UPDATE: Thanks to an email from their creator, I can tell you that the quilts were made by psychologist Marjorie Taylor, whose work on children’s imaginary friends has been previously featured on Mind Hacks. Thanks Marjorie!
