Specular holograms by Matthew Brand currently on display at the new Museum of Mathematics in New York.

See his site for more.

The technique used by Brand to create these pieces is not one of conventional holography. He meticulously controls the unique shape of thousands of tiny optical pieces placed on a surface creating a 3D effect when the light source or viewer moves. This is essentially a mathematical problem in differential geometry and combinatorial optimization. Brand is the first person to correctly describe this technique in 2008 even though it dates back as early as the 1930s (check out his paper for details).

WebGL in-browser interactive 3D map of the brain by James Gao:

This viewer shows how information about thousands of object and action categories is represented across human neocortex. The data come from brain activity measurements made using fMRI while a participant watched hours of movie trailers. Computational modeling procedures were used to determine how 1705 distinct object and action categories are represented in the brain.
