The Soft Tissue series is comprised of beautiful glass sculptures and intricate drawn schematics that explore the anatomy of people, plants and animals. Providing an interesting study of various life forms, the Soft Tissue series melds the "eastern ideas of emotional organ frequencies [with] western philosophies of organism functionality," as written on Beautiful Decay.

Created by YaYa Chou, a self-taught artist who was born in Taiwan and is based in Los Angeles, the Soft Tissues series definitely draws on her differing backgrounds. While her glass creations are a sight to behold due to their delicate nature, the drawings are particularly amusing. That is because they are accompanied by descriptions such as "axon carries feelings away' and 'old chest to store secrets.'
