Spotlight – The Body Of Work

This month's Spotlight post is courtesy of Tom Crowe, who directed me towards this video.
“The drive to not only teach, but to entertain, resulted in some of the strangest anatomical illustrations…” says Vanessa Ruiz in her TED Talk: 'The spellbinding art of human anatomy'.
“Nothing can elicit an emotional response, from joy to complete disgust, as much as the human body.” 

Vanessa’s talk is an enlightening and exciting tour through medical illustration
The description from the site: " Vanessa Ruiz takes us on an illustrated journey of human anatomical art over the centuries, sharing captivating images that bring this visual science — and the contemporary artists inspired by it — to life. "Anatomical art has the power to reach far beyond the pages of a medical textbook," she says, "connecting our innermost selves with our bodies through art." "
