Eye Heart Spleen: Human Organs Made from Plants by Camila Carlow
Our organs are essential elements to our bodies. They sustain us until the inevitable. This photography series titled Eye Heart Spleen by Camila Carlow is a beautiful reminder of the machinery that lies beneath our skin.
Carlows comments on her project saying, “The most fascinating and intricate of biological structures, yet we rarely pay heed to the organs inside our body. Regardless of whether we fill ourselves with toxins or nourishing food, whether we exercise or not—our organs sustain us, working away effortlessly and unnoticed. In a similar way, plants flourishing in the urban environment are a testament to nature’s indifference to our goings on. They grow out of the sides of buildings, in brick walls and between the cracks in concrete, despite of the traffic and pollution.”
