digital flower art by Macoto Murayama

Check out Macoto Murayama's ethereal illustrations of flowers that seem to come straight out of Avatar. His process is remarkably craft-loaded: he uses a scalpel to dissect flowers, then gets to the microscope, photographs and sketches to digitally reproduce the flower in 3D, from which the final rendering is created. My, he could be the Ernst Haeckel of the 21st century.

So this is what can happen when plants go digital. These are definitely images that don't need to be described; you need to leave language behind and just look at it. Just look at it.
