Nature from the inside out — beautiful X-ray images show the hidden complexity of the natural world
Radiation physicist Arie van’t Riet never thought he’d be an artist. But after a colleague asked him to X-ray a painting, Arie saw a world of possibilities for X-ray imaging outside the hospital. He began to X-ray all sorts of atypical subjects — flowers, plants, bugs, snails, lizards — seduced by the challenge of recreating natural scenes.
In a fascinating talk at TEDxGroningen, Arie explains his journey from physicist to artist, and shares the process behind his beautiful, sometimes-tricky art. Says Arie, “I try to combine the visible world, with color and surface, with the X-ray world — the inner.”

TINY INEFFICIENT BABIES WITH THEIR PADDLY FEET AND THEIR PEEP PEEP AND SO MANY
THE LAST ONE I WAS CHEERING FOR SO HARD
may or may not have mastered the art of indecisiveness
things that are way harder than they should be:
- spreading cold butter on soft bread
- getting a good education
- sacrificing a child for the glory of our lord satan in public
- loving whoever you want
- getting asked to go on a date i mean seriously damn
Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.
He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.
I made this WTNV sticker set and Print (the glow cloud one ) for Cecil and Dylan to give it to them in the #SDCC Panel, and also a friend of mine, gave them Mexican candies to Jeffrey Cranor and Joseph Fink (because we are Mexican). But because the event we wherent able to gave them the gifts personally and a really nice guy in the staff told us that he could.
We were so nervous because we where thinking that maybe they didn’t deliver them or something, but today in the Autograph boot in SDCC, We asked them if they had received them and they told us that yes and that they liked them so much and also my fanart.
Because I forgot my poster I took from my bag the reserve print I had and well they signed it jhfgfkjg
I was so nervous and happy!! AND I AM GOING TO KEEP SMILING every time I see my fanart
