Inside Insides

Andy Ellison is a MRI technologist at Boston University Medical School, Center for Biomedical Imaging, and he has created a series of images that are fascinating. Utilizing technology that is most usually used for research, Mr. Ellison scanned various fruits and vegetables to take a peek inside them in a way we don’t often get a glimpse of.

You can watch these evolving images and enjoy the wonder of the combining science and art in a new way.
