Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit

I have to say, that this completely gross me out! And yet I find it interesting. And odd. And  disgusting. And, like, trying too hard to stand out. I seriously get sick to my stomach just looking at it.

Performance artist Millie Brown uses her body in an uncomfortable way in order to create bright splashes of color on canvas – and sometimes clothes and people. She mixes colors into soy milk before regurgitating the milk onto her preferred canvas, akin to the drip-color style of Jackson Pollock.

Responses to her work have varied, ranging from laughing to crying, declarations of love, and even death threats, but Brown maintains that art is supposed to inspire powerful emotions in people.

“I have an inherent desire to push my own boundaries within my art… By creating art from the very depths of my own physical being I am able to challenge people’s perception of beauty, expressing raw elements of human nature and in turn challenging myself both physically and mentally”, Millie Brown says.

Professor Claudia Diaz Teaches Human Anatomy By Painting Students Bodies

At RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, lecturer Claudia Diaz has implemented an unconventional project in order to inspire her anatomy students. After teaching  human anatomy for over 20 years, Diaz decided to try something new as she found the regular routine of anatomical memorization boring and uninspired. Over the past 3 years, Diaz has explored human anatomy with her students by having them paint the bodies of 10 students, revealing tendons and bones that would be visible if the person’s skin were stripped. Featured in these photographs is chiropractic student Zac O’Brien who patiently sat for around 18 hours while fellow students painted him. The finished result is what Diaz likes to call “anatomical man,” first brought to one of her classes in 2010.

”We walked him in and I still remember the looks on the kids’ faces. They were just in awe,” she said. ”I realised it shocked them, it inspired them and it motivated them.” Previously shy about taking off their clothes so classmates could study their bodies, the students began to shed their inhibitions through this painting exercise. ”I couldn’t get the kids to keep their clothes on. They were all throwing them off,” Dr Diaz said.

Portraits by KwangHo Shin

Portraits by KwangHo Shin 1 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 2 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 3 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 4 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 5 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 6

All the figures appearing in Korean artist KwangHo Shin‘s works are individuals and self-portraits.

“The spirit he wanted to inspire the figures with is that of a distorted hero’s or another character unidentifiable with eyes. Majority of specific people are the figures whom he depicts. He distorts a figure trying not to transform the mind and social environment unique to him. It is not the transformation from a person to no person, but from a specific to an ordinary person. He himself is flown into it. It is the method to include his own artistic experience and value. Though it is not clear where to use, works of arts become the criteria in grasping the reality. They reveal thinking while making the figure seen thinking. A specific person is thought while lump of dyes are loaded on a canvas. It’s inefficient to say ‘painted with a brush’. The lump moves freely all over the canvas without staying at a point. A face is treated as the spirit of common people who gaze at the world, rather than as a person. The biggest significance is put on the expression of the inner mind when facing an empty canvas. It is a way of revealing it as a thing to the world rather than representing a person. This is his second characteristics.”

Timelapse Video of Hundreds of Snails Tagged with LEDs at Night

Timelapse Video of Hundreds of Snails Tagged with LEDs at Night 1 Timelapse Video of Hundreds of Snails Tagged with LEDs at Night 2 Timelapse Video of Hundreds of Snails Tagged with LEDs at Night 3

As part of ongoing research into the transmission of lungworm from snails to dogs, a team of researchers from the Ecology department at the University of Exeter lead by Dr. Dave Hodgson created an experiment to track the movement of snails through a garden at night.

The team tagged hundreds of live snails with an array of LEDs and UV paint and then tracked their speed and patterns of movement at night. Apparently lungworm infections are potentially fatal in dogs and nobody is exactly sure how the organisms make the leap from snails to dogs in the first place, though the assumption is accidental ingestion.

If you want to skip the research story, and jump straight to the snail, which glows in the dark, start the video around 2:15.

Over 130 Gallons Of Paint Dumped In Busy Intersection – by Iepe Rubinigh

Iepe-Rubingh-street-art4 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art1 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art2 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art3 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art5 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art6

Dutch artist Iepe Rubinigh and the Anonymous Crew took the term “street art” very literally with their piece Painting Reality.  The group, equipped on bicycles, purposely spilled over 130 gallons of eco-friendly water soluble paint in a Berlin’s busy Rosenthaler Platz intersection.  The cars then acted as brushes spreading the various colors through street.  An abstract painting detailing the fluid-like flow of traffic unfolded over the next several minutes and 2,000 cars.  Painting Reality introduced pleasantly bright color to otherwise drab asphalt.
