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.
Below is an image of the inside components of a pineapple. To my eye, the alien fruit takes on entomological characteristics. What is a common grocery store item becomes something exotic and different.
These commonplace produce aisle items are similarly transformed into different images. Broccoli begins to look like fireworks, a cucumber looks like flapping dragonfly wings, and kiwi an eye iris.
You can watch these evolving images and enjoy the wonder of the combining science and art in a new way.
