In the same vein as this Buzz post, here is another interesting blend of art and science. Bjork teams up with a biomedical animator to create a music video for her song "Hollow."

The animation is a mesmerizing, slightly creepy exercise of scale: it takes you down to the nanoscale, where you watch DNA replicate, then all the way back out to the macroscale, when you zoom out of Bjork's forehead. Interesting, indeed.

That was very cool. The DNA replicating machines especially.
