Anatomical Collages by Frederick Sommer

Anatomical Collages by Frederick SommerA collection of collages that appear to made of cut up anatomy textbooks. His choice of source material seems pretty ironic given the fact that anatomical illustration is all about putting the pieces exactly where they need to be in relation to the other pieces. Although visually interesting, decontextualized anatomy is basically information free. It’s also interesting to think about what he had to do to the original prints as being akin to surgery or autopsy. Sommer’s obituary. [via Consumptive]
