Trapped and Happy Meal by Kelly Gilleran

In “Trapped”, Kelly explores the concept of the Rube Golbergian Hand of God slowly manipulating minor events to ultimately enslave you, as depicted through the classic childhood board game Mousetrap, the unfortunate victims trapped in poses from classic religious art. And in “Happy Meal”, a friend of the artist dressed as Ronald McDonald force feeds fast food down the throat of an obese version of himself. Prints and other goodies available for purchase at Society6.

You Wish Your Neurons Were This Pretty

When Greg Dunn finished his Ph.D. in neuroscience at Penn in 2011, he bought himself a sensory deprivation tank as a graduation present. The gift marked a major life transition, from the world of science to a life of meditation and art.
Now a full-time artist living in Philadelphia, Dunn says he was inspired in his grad-student days by the spare beauty of neurons treated with certain stains. The Golgi stain, for example, will turn one or two neurons black against a golden background. ”It has this Zen quality to it that really appealed to me,” Dunn said.
