The Natural Selection by Noah Scalin

“The Natural Selection portrait series specifically explores the lives of great scientists whose work has had an incredible impact on the world. Each diptych is made up of the portrait of a deceased scientist and a representation of his/her skull. The skull is made by literally rearranging the elements used in the portrait, thus destroying that original creation in the spirit of the traditional sand mandalas of Tibetan Buddhism. The scientists represented are all great thinkers whose creations had an impact on our lives today, but also serious repercussions for their own lives (and deaths).

Inspired by the work of 16th century Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, the images are intentionally created at a scale that allows the faces/skulls and the objects that are used to make them to be visible at the same time, thus creating a visible vibration – an oscillation between form and symbol – in the viewers’ minds.”
