If We Could Walk Through Each Others’ Thoughts


Velvet Bellied by Michael Frank

Velvet Bellied by Michael Frank

If we could walk through each others' thoughts, what would they look like? Tangled gardens overgrown with living, growing ideas, each competing for space as they reach for the sun? Michael Frank's dreamy, yet surprisingly tangible scenes are full of emotion and thought - foreign, yet perfectly understandable - a window into his inner landscape. See more of this fantastical BOTANIKA series and Frank's other projects at his portfolio site, Behance, CGSociety, DeviantArt, and Twitter.


For the third year running, we are turning September into a month-long celebration of science artists by delivering a new morsel of sciart to chew on each day. Totally yum? Check out what was previously featured on this day:
