Artist Inspiration

As a current science student, I've always pondered whether it was the right decision to make - considering art has always been my raison d'ĂȘtre. The two ideas are on the opposite sides of the spectrum; one deals with logic and reasoning, while the other challenges the mind to make daring leaps in the realm of creativity. It seems impossible to combine the two together without some great release of madness. But somehow, Ariel Ruiz has done it. He's made art that is connected to science - take for example, the human face above composed of what appears to be cells. Side note: he's a scientist too. I've only selected a few images from his Genome and Identity gallery, but all of his art is hauntingly beautiful. I encourage everyone to take a peek at his website,!
