Japanese artist Iori Tomita combines art and science in his series, New World Transparencies. Tomita soaks his specimens in a mixture of blue stain, ethyl alcohol, and glacial acetic acid before using the enzyme trypsin to breakdown muscles. He dyes the organisms with red dye and potassium hydroxide and then preserves them in glycerine. His intriguing art is vivid and almost other-worldly.

Japanese artist Iori Tomita transforms the scientific technique of preserving and dying organism specimens into an art form with his series, 'shinsekai [toumei hyouhon]' ('new world transparent specimens')

Artist Steffan Dam produces fantastical and intricately-crafted specimens that look as though they exist in the real world. Suspended in glass jars and on plates, their forms mimic well-known creatures of the sea and budding plants. Although Dam’s work is based in imagination, his skills as a craftsman—including glass blowing, casting, and grinding—produce a hyperrealistic appearance that fools us into thinking these specimens have been captured alive and in mid-movement.
