The Near-Sighted Monkey

British artist Angela Palmer uses the medium of MRI scans to make images.

"I developed this concept by drawing or engraving details from MRI and CT scans onto multiple sheets of glass, thereby layer by layer recreating human and animal forms, in particular the brain. The finished pieces, presented in three dimensions in a vertical plane, reveal the extraordinary inner anatomical architecture concealed beneath the surface, thus creating the most objective form of portraiture. The image floats ethereally in its glass chamber, but can only be viewed from certain angles – from above and from the side the image vanishes and the viewer sees only a void."

We are thankful to Andrew Bernhardt for bringing this artist’s work to our attention.
