Danny Quirk, whose creative handling of anatomical illustration we’ve written about before, is back with more. This time he’s left paper behind in favor of human flesh. Thanks to io9.com for the story, and reader Breshvic for the lead.
Legendary music producer, artist, and underground luminary Kim Fowley grabs a scalpel and joins The Art of Bleeding’s fetish-friendly nursing staff in this doll hospital ether dream of nursery rhymes, anatomical striptease, and decidedly adult doll-women.
Again with our fascination for anatomical fetish fashions…
This link comes from the ever-tantalizing StreetAnatomy blog, describing the work:
This beautiful collection by Jemma Marie McLean, called Skinned Alive the Anatomical Structure is inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s anatomical drawings.
Jemma founded Purdy Corsetry after being disappointed by the quality and selection of what she found in New Zealand. She knew with her wealth of experience in sewing and degree in Fashion design from Massey University that she could make the best corsets possible.
Purdy Corsetry is located in Central Wellington, New Zealand. View all her latest work via Facebook!
Another strange combination of art with medicine, this time from doctor, Jon Tsoi “Master of Tao-Blindfolded-Inner Spirit Art-Medicine.” He explains his blindfolded mucking about with paint, canvas, and herbs as a means of balancing ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually. “My art is a remedy promoting a harmonious way of life. Furthermore, it is a prescription for a new wave of art…”
I love pre-modern art. It is an endless source of inspiration for me, a true bottomless well of ideas. Looking at some picture throughout the years, I can continue to find new elements in it, discover new qualities that I didn’t notice before. My real favourites would be Hans Memling, Enguerrand Quarton and Nicolas Poussin. I have definitely less interest for modern art.

Our Halloween weekend extravaganza at the Steve Allen Theater will feature a rare live appearance by the enitmatic band/art-collective known as Bouncehausen. Preferring to perform under pitch black conditions only intermittently interrupted by seizure-inducing blasts from a strobe, this reclusive group have rarely been photographed. However, our sources assure us that the pitiable creatures featured in the photographs above are among its key members.
On October 28, 29, and 30th, Bouncehausen’s performance will take place indoors on the theater stage, before, during, and probably long after the outdoor show takes place. Intrepid visitors are invited to wander in and experience Bouncehausen at any point during the evening. During the course of their 72-hour performance they are expected to sustain and relieve themselves through intubation.
A spokesperson for the group has released this statement:
Bouncehausen will sonically recreate the exact moment of impact of a terrifying automobile crash, slow it down 300 million times and stretch it into one seven hour epic “song” that will take three days to play. If you are able to witness even a small part of this historic event you will have a much greater understanding of what it sounds like to exist on a molecular level as steel and glass twist and explode.
(WARNING: Bouncehausen contains members of Woodpussy, WACO, Millisecond Evolution and Gingerbread Swastika. Please be advised)
Thanks, Skary Nurse, for reminding us about this video….
Benway is the name of a character in many of William S. Burroughs’ novels, including Naked Lunch. Usually referred to as “Dr. Benway” or “Doc Benway,” (his first name is not revealed), he was used by the author to parody the medical profession and, perhaps, the misuses of science in general. More of a maverick surgical artist than a doctor, Benway lacks a conscience and is more interested in his performance (and his next fix) than his patients’ well-being. Benway is a manipulator and coordinator of symbolic systems, an expert on all phases of interrogation, brainwashing and control. He is also a master of disguise and gender ambiguity, playing the role of ‘mild mannered doctor’ stateside, whilst simultaneously maintaining the persona of ‘fadela- the bitch queen’, leading a carde of lesbian lovers in the medina and puppeteering a drug network.
