All-too-human art

March 1, 2009 | By | Reply More

In a recent article appearing in Nature, “More Than Skin Deep,” Martin Kemp asks what we are to think of Andrew Krasnow’s work of art entitled “Flag from Flag Poll.”   The artwork is a 2 meter long American Flag made out of human skin.

Consider, also, the online exhibit entitled “Making Visible Embryos,” by Tatjana Buklijas and Nick Hopwood.  In Nature, Alison Abbott describes the exhibit as “the story of how embryos have been depicted.”
