Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

This is another fascinating stop-motion video by artist Carel Brest van Kempen. This video documents the creation of an acrylic painting of an unusual Panamanian frog, the Northern Casque-headed Treefrog.

Carel Brest van Kempen published a stunning book, Rigor Vitae: Life Unyielding [my review] and writes the art blog that goes by the same name, that might be of interest to you.

    Thanks for posting these, GS. I had some registration problems on this one, but it seems appropriate that a frog should jump around a bit.

    Nice stuff. I am always amazed how they are able to create art in that fashion.
