I know that everyone and their mother has seen these works by now.  But what makes these pieces by artist Lisa Nilsson so incredible is the detail, thoughtful technique and observation that the rolled paper makes a beautiful representation of anatomical cross sections.  Everyone has appreciated it, even those who don’t necessarily find science and anatomy particularly interesting.  It’s this type of transcendent anatomical art that we here at Street Anatomy drool over.

If you, like me, gasped at the site of these and instantly wanted to know how she created them, head over to ArtSake for the wonderful interview with Lisa. She shares her inspiration, technique, and overall amazingness in the interview.
