Reflection, perspective, and relative location in art

"The Skewed, Anamorphic Sculptures and Engineered Illusions of Jonty Hurwitz" http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2013/01/the-skewed-anamorphic-sculptures-and-engineered-illusions-of-jonty-hurwitz/

By distorting the sculpture - the reflection is then assembled as the object we recognize.  I be physicists are loving this!  

Here's a film to see one of his pieces come together - perspective, location...  These would all be fun for the Spy code classes!

Beautiful Viruses

" Luke Jerram, makes exact glass replicas of harmful viruses: HIV, E. Coli, etc....Each replica is about 1,000,000 times the size of the actual virus." - http://imgur.com/gallery/XpU18

This is his Website...  I just can't get enough of this work.  Turning something scary and deadly into a beautiful work of art.... It makes you want to learn about the viruses, not fear them.
I love it when Art does good.

"Nothing but the flower" Scientific Illustration!

"I've been interested in honing in on the flowers themselves, without context. In taking a subject and taking everything away, and placing them in a neutral space, there's a democratization that happens. The beauty of nature is then able to be realized," Zuckerman says.  -  http://sciencefriday.com/blogs/01/08/2013/nothing-but-flower.html?interest=1&audience=4&series=20
