Scientists aren't the only ones having fun with this new research into what is now informally being called plant neurobiology (though this is a bit of a misnomer, as plants do not have neurons per se). This Artist Got Cancer Of The Pineal Gland. His Paintings Will Leave You Speechless. · The Mind Unleashed.

Artist Wants To Map Every Single Human Skin Tone On Earth

Instead, we’ll use their corresponding Pantone color to describe the tone of their skin. If this happens, we’ll have to thank artist Angelica Dass for building the first database of skin hues. Dass started her project, Humanae, in April 2012, by photographing some of her Brazilian family members.
