Actually, Josh, don’t look. Everybody else: This woman makes art with medical themes and materials, often using her own blood. I’m particularly drawn to the Blood Scarf, a scarf knitted from clear vinyl tubing that attaches to the wearer via an intravenous device, filling with the user’s blood. It’s beautiful…
… and also creepy.
Also check out “Pillows,” on which the artist has silk-screened close-up shots of human skin:
There’s an equally squeam-inducing video of mirror-image blood drops approaching each other and receding over and over again, but you’ll have to go to her web site to see it. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
