Floral X-rays

with 2 comments

Sometimes the line between science visualization and art is a blur.  Brendan Fitzpatrick’s series of floral X-rays is a perfect example, where a scientific technique that relays structural information about the subject is also incredibly beautiful.  Below are my favorites; many more images can be found on Brendan’s website.
