A genius idea to make the pain of a broken bone a talking point by Castoo;
“A picture is worth 1,000 words. Save your breath and explanations by showing the world what’s going on under that cast. Had a really bad break that you want to show off? Send us the digital file of your x-ray, and we’ll send you back your break in print, ready to be applied directly to your cast.”

French artist Cecile Dachary makes the most amazing crocheted pieces of art and includes many influenced by the body and anatomy;
‘I’m interested in the representation of the body with the fabric, it is the close relationship between this material and the human. The fabric is a second skin, a body wrap that keeps the imprint of the body that brought. This makes the living tissue, gives it a sensual materiality. The fabric bodyguard memories, whole or fragmented. This memory is kept multiple, moving, disturbing, violent, sensual or erotic. It is pattern or volume. I trace or pattern according to my emotions or my intuition the more figurative expression to a more simplified version of the original, round, through evocative organic volumes. I do not refer only outside but also inside, inventing my own representation of the body, organs and cells for microscopic bacteria, I fantasized images and gives fantastic. I try to express intimacy, the secret inside.’

This drawing by T. Dylan Moore seems to reflect decomposition after death;
“According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you’re just less orderly”
