"Is cinema a language about to get lost, an art about to die?"

Thomas Wilmer Dewing, Head of a Woman, c. 1894
From the Cleveland Museum of Art:
This remarkable drawing reveals the beauty of silverpoint, which requires scratching with a metal point on to a prepared paper. A demanding technique that allows no corrections, the method was used in the Renaissance by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, and it was revived in the late 19th century. Beginning in 1896, the art supply company Winsor-Newton offered a kit with a silverpoint tool and prepared paper. Dewing skillfully exploited the qualities of this technique to create an image with a silvery sheen, which seems to float upon the paper.
Weaving Neuroscience and Art Together
What’s that? Wooden brains aren’t enough for you? Ok, since you can’t get enough, here’s some amazing knitted brain art. These are real fMRI scans and anatomical studies translated into yarn and woven into rugs!
There’s actually a whole mini-museum for this stuff, appropriately titled “The Museum of Scientifically Accurate Brain Art”. Best “weaving” of science and art since these math-inspired creations of New Mexico artist Donna Loraine Contractor.
