Silence, but for the clouds moving across the sky

Lee Tracy is an artist who creates poems out of brain scans.

The image is from a 2006 exhibition called Negative to Positive that was shown in the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago.

Each image is an CT scan of the artist’s brain, mounted in a light box and etched with a statement of the profound to the whimsical.

If you’re a neuroscientist and your lab needs more poetry or you’re an artist and your studio needs more neuroscience, you can purchase the pieces from the artist through Etsy.
