This incredibly surreal Antony Gormley 'Bodies in Space' series explores the interaction between the human body and the surrounding space. The artist uses round molecular-shaped pieces to create these human forms. From a distance these installations are a bit ghostly and frightening.

Gormley is known to make massive sculptures that easily catch one's attention. What makes art so intriguing is that every artist draws from different inspiration and interests, which is often reflected in their works. Gormley seems to have a fascination with the human brain and body as most of his works involve bones, brains and the human form.

His works would make for great art displays for companies in the medical field, and could also pose as great learning tools for educators.
