Mixed Media Work

Untitled 

More art made from my MRI. Kind of hard to get photos of this, looks better with a bright light behind it, but then that causes reflections on the plexi-glass.

I decided I wanted to paint one of the scans but paint different parts of my brain in different colours and on different sheets to try to give a better sense of the layers in a brain. This is def. a piece that look so much better in person lol and you do get a better sense of layers when viewed in front of you rather then in a photo.

Cool idea. Did you paint the shapes or print them? The idea of multiple brain shapes to play with is kind of intriguing.

there painted on, so have a bit of a bumpy texture to them :) i guess I could have printed them, then i could have printed my brain on everything :p

It's 3-d, of course it looks better in person. Neat. Painted brains...

I can see the different layers in the first picture. It reminds me of the clear pages of the human or animal body in the old Encyclopaedias!! Your brain is very interesting.
