These Beautifully Strange Anatomical Collages Are Top-Notch

The recipe for the art of Dividus: throw equal parts Pascal and Vesalius into a blender; add liberal amounts of absinthe and glue. Mix well. Serve colorfully and in digital form, preferably over ice.

I’ve gushed over my love of anatomy, geometry, and color before, so I won’t bore you. But these are just right.

ATI Guides You Through The Street Art Of DUMBO, Brooklyn

Photographer Killian Simon and I took to the streets of DUMBO, Brooklyn to get some shots of the area’s lovely street art. For those of you in New York, these pieces are found along York and Pearl streets under the BQE overpasses. DUMBO is a fantastic area (also the headquarters of PBH Network) and worth a visit, so if you’re in New York, I highly suggest you make the trip. We could have a beer.

Mimosa Pudica

Strange Mimosa Pudica Plant

The Mimosa Pudica is an extremely sensitive plant that reacts to the slightest stimulus including touch, warmth, wind or even a shake. The herb responds by collapsing into itself and then reopening a few minutes later. This sensitivity is a result of seismonastic movements, which are the result of water movement in and out of the cell.
