What if our lungs were made out of flowers instead of, uhhm, lungs? Or what if our arteries were clogged with weeds instead of cholesterol? Or cactus for brains (which some people I know might already have)? Mixed media artist Travis Bedel uses glue and razor blades to cut out vintage illustrations from science books to create anatomical collages. He takes anatomical, botanical, and other biological parts and recombines them into figures that are both familiar and alien to us. His work range in size, from 5 inches to 6 feet.

You can see more of his imaginative works on his Tumblr, and he has prints for sale on Etsy and Society6.
