Brain art in gold leaf and ink wash

Greg Dunn Design

I came across some mind-blowingly gorgeous artwork via I09 a few weeks back, which fuses science and aesthetics on a level that I've never seen anyone come close to. Neuroscience PhD graduate turned artist, Greg Dunn, uses gold leaf and classical Japanese in wash techniques to create compositions that fairly glow with activity. Other pieces on his site are closer to traditional minimalist scroll and screen work, that show little but suggests much in structure and animation.

It's very much worth checking out Mr. Dunn's site as it will be most beautiful five or ten minutes that you spend online today.
