The Art of Medicine

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Cristina Guitian was recently commissioned to draw a 38-meter mural for the AMC Hospital in Amsterdam.

The London-based artist writes that the result, Memories of the Structure of the Universe, is her hand drawn representation of the human body throughout the hospital, which "serves as a reminder that there always will be a different way to see life - a surreal, lighthearted and above all personal approach to the marvel of being human."
