Artist Rogan Brown emulates Petri dish cultures with his incredibly detailed paper sculptures. Studying microbes in order to better inform his art, Brown masterfully creates paper works that seem to be growing the longer you look at them. Breaking art down to the building blocks of life, here are 25 of my favorite images. I can’t even imagine how long these took to create! These and more can be found on Rogan Brown’s website.
