Flowers in Progress: Scientific Illustrator, Noel Badges Pugh
Scientific illustrator and artist Noel Badges Pugh has an incredible knack for drawing flora and fauna. He recently illustrated an entire field guide about bees and keeps a regular Tumblr, Art in Progress & Completion, where he posts these tantalizing drawings of buds and blooms.

Carlos Cruz-Diez - “Chromosaturation”
"Chromosaturations are artificial environments consisting of three chambers—one red, one green, and one blue—that immerse the visitor in a total monochromatic situation. This experience triggers disturbances on the retina, which is accustomed to being exposed to a broad range of colors simultaneously. Chromosaturations can act as detonators that trigger the viewer’s idea of color while generating a physical, material situation taking place in space, with no past or present, no help from form and devoid of support, unencumbered by cultural conventions."
