Art of the x-ray

I’ve just fallen totally, completely in love with Boing Boing lately, perhaps because they’ve been such a good source of topics dealing with the combination of art and science.

For example, an article about cast-art depicting broken-bone X-rays:


Casttoo makes decorative decals for your orthopedic casts — including these ones, depicting the broken bones within. (via )JWZ

What better way to show off your horribly gruesome injury, or the joys of modern medicine, and being creative about decorating your cast all at the same time.



Beth Kelley is an applied & digital anthropologist with an overall interest in how people engage with and are impacted by their environments and vice versa. This has manifested itself in many ways, by looking at creativity, playful spaces, built environments, and environmental enrichment, sustainability, design research, and integrative and collaborative models of learning such as through play and hands-on learning.
