This is an image of a piece of dentine acquired using a scanning electron microscope. It shows the dentinal tubules viewed after demineralization using etching with 37% phosphoric acid for 15 seconds and 10% sodium hypochlorite for 1 minute. The colors were obtained by mixing the signals of secondary and backscattered electrons. The mixing is performed using the software FEI Company.

LA COURSE A LA MORT [en]

3. november 2012

This poster, issued in 1926 by the National French League against the Danger of Venereal Disease, neatly encapsulates the perceived risks associated with three diseases in the 1920s. Death watches a three-horse race, in which Tuberculosis (150,000 deaths per year) narrowly beats Syphilis (140,000 deaths per year), while Cancer causes only 40,000 deaths.

THE INFANT SMALLPOX VICTIM

Name: Unknown
Age: about nine months

Smallpox was so prevalent in the 18th century that diarist Samuel Pepys described it as being ‘as common as eating or swearing’.

It accounted for around ten per cent of all deaths, among them that of this nine-month-old baby.

The case had to be severe in order to affect the bones, and for this poor mite it clearly was, as you can see its legacy in the swelling around the elbow joint.

Peter Callesen: The Painter, 2010 
115 gsm acid free A4 paper, glue

Check out www.petercallesen.com/paper/a4-papercuts/ for more great papercuts - all made out of a single sheet of A4 paper

A large part of my work is made from A4 sheets of paper. It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today. This is why we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper. By taking away all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white A4 paper sheet for my creations, I feel I have found a material that we are all able to relate to, and at the same time the A4 paper sheet is neutral and open to fill with different meaning. The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works.

The paper cut sculptures explore the probable and magical transformation of the flat sheet of paper into figures that expand into the space surrounding them. The negative and absent 2 dimensional space left by the cut, points out the contrast to the 3 dimensional reality it creates, even though the figures still stick to their origin without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in many of the cuts.
