I was hesitant to see the Bodies exhibit when it first came to New York City – squeamish and almost nauseated at the idea of seeing the insides of the human body. Clearly, science was never my best subject. But it ended up being absolutely fascinating and suddenly, it felt silly that I would have had such unwarranted apprehension towards something so normal and natural. These beautiful collages, by artist Travis Bedel, merge anatomical imagery with illustrations from vintage etchings from science guides and textbooks. And I think they are just too cool.
