    Trippy! Is that a Haeckel-style radiolarian right below the brain? I think it is.

    That’s my guess too Emily! I love Haeckel’s radiolaria – they look so much like something Buckminster Fuller would have come up with.

    Found the source– it’s at the center: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Haeckel_Stephoidea_edit.jpg

    Haeckel’s images of radiolaria really are amazingly beautiful, even if real ones are a bit less crystalline and symmetric.

    Trippy indeed! It reminds of Rick Griffin’s posters, circa 1969.

    You have inspired this Australian that she needs to one day book a trip in order to be part of the Burning Man Festival.

    Is it possible to buy a Burning Man Evolution 2009 poster? I went last year and really wanted to find one to remember my first trip to Burning Man.
