Iori Tomita’s “New world Transparent Specimens”

Untitled 6

Iori Tomita’s “New world Transparent Specimens” (via boingboing.net) are a collection of marine animal skeltons which have been colorfully dyed. Tomita writes:

Transparent specimens ? they are far from what you might imagine from the word “specimens.” Although being organisms, they appear as if they were beautifully sculpted from minerals.

Originally, the method of making transparent specimens ? enzymatically turning the protein transparent, dyeing the bones magenta and dyeing the cartilages blue ? was established for scientific purposes to study the skeletal system. Taking this a step further to refine the form and coloration of the specimens requires time and experience.

I create transparent specimens as pieces of work that help people feel closer to the wonders of life.

People may look at my specimens as an academic material, a piece of art, or even an entrance to philosophy. There is no limitation to how you interpret their meaning.
I hope you will find my work as a “lens” to project a new image, a new world that you’ve never seen before.

Please enjoy the beautiful and wondrous world of “New World Transparent Specimens.”
