Surgically Altered Ceramics by Beccy Ridsdel
UK-based artist Beccy Ridsdel creates fun yet strangely macabre interventions where ceramics have been surgically altered to reveal additional layers of detail. Where the metaphor of surgery might normally evoke blood and guts, Ridsdel instead reveals further floral patterns inside bone china plates and cups. The pieces are part of an ongoing examination regarding the perception of ceramics as craft or art. You can see more of her work over on Facebook and she has a few pieces for sale in her shop.

Adventure Time is such an important show and there’s so much to learn from it.
Artist and radiation physicist Arie van’t Riet inverts and colorizes x-rays to create these fascinating images.
Learn more about him and his work in this video from his TEDx talk:
The photo above is the closest humanity has ever come to creating Medusa. If you were to look at this, you would die after 300 seconds.
The image is of a reactor core lava formation in the basement of the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It’s called the Elephant’s Foot and weighs hundreds of tons, but is only a couple meters across.
Oh, and regarding the Medusa thing, this picture was taken through a mirror around the corner of the hallway. Because the wheeled camera they sent up to take pictures of it was destroyed by the radiation. The Elephant’s Foot is almost as if it is a living creature.
