NOTE: If you are looking for a truly special piece, the microetching replicates from Self Reflected are nearly ready to be released. If the final experiment in making these being performed on 3/29/17 and 3/30/17 is successful, we will be releasing the full Self Reflected piece as a true metalized microetching that has all of the beautiful reflective effects as the original. It is, by far, the least expensive microetching-type offering I will have ever offered. If you would like to hold out on the normal prints above and learn more, please look here. I will have more information on the site by Friday 3/31/17 at the absolute latest as to whether I’ll be taking orders, and will have pictures etc. of them.  I promise you that if you hold out for a couple days in the hopes of getting one of these that if the experiments fail I will guarantee you one of the above traditional prints.

Product Description

by Greg Dunn and Brian Edwards
(archival glossy prints on subtly metallic paper. Website watermark is absent in the actual print)

This image has received the distinction of winning the Illustration category of the National Science Foundation and Popular Science’s 2017 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge (the Vizzies)!

Self Reflected in Violets is a print of the entire 8′ X 12′ Self Reflected microetching, the world’s most comprehensive artistic depiction of the brain in the world. Photographed under red, violet, and white light, the print depicts the half a million neurons and their associated circuitry in warm violet tones. Due to its scope and intricacy, this would be an appealing print for a wide variety of brain interested parties!
