KLARI REIS SCI ART BY ROBERT T. GONZALEZ
Psychedelic Petri dishes turn lab work into a freakout session Can you guess the subject of this photograph? It's a bloodshot alien eyeball! Just kidding, although all that red totally resembles vasculature don't you think?
Don't worry, the real answer is just as awesome: believe it or not, this is actually a Petri dish, created by artist Klari Reis.
Reis uses individually-crafted dishes like the one up top (although each one is incredibly unique-looking), and combines them into much bigger installation pieces like the one you see below. This particular collection of dishes is described on her website - definitely check out her blog
