Artist Johannes Stötter created this incredible body painting – human chameleon which consists of, not just one person, but two people lying on top of each other. Stötter worked for four hours to design the piece and the bodypainting took six hours with the help of an assistant. While a photo of this chameleon is stunning, in and of itself, watch the video to be really shocked. The colorful creature comes alive! Slowly the “chameleon’s” arms move and then a leg unbends. You must watch the video at the end!
These delicate paper sculptures created by Korean artist Ho Yoon Shin appear to to vanish when viewed from certain angles. Each fragile sculpture is made of hand-cut paper and those paper strips joined together to make it looks like one whole entity. Moreover, the paper strips provide a fluid opacity that changes dynamically according to perspective – making them fade in and out as one walks around the sculptures.
“Animals in Moiré” is a series of animals illustrated with textured moiré patterns created by Milan-based designer Andrea Minini. Using Adobe Illustrator, Minini makes use of visual interference caused by overlapping lines in different densities to create those black and white animals. It is impressive to see how the patterns give each illustration a great sense of motion, curving naturally with the shape of each animal.
FYI: Moiré is defined as s visual effect that appears when a series of lines or dots is superimposed over another such set of differing size, angle or spacing.
Described as 3 dimensional drawings in the medium of ceramics, Katharine Morling’s work looks like made of paper at the first glance. Instead of simply making the pieces and leaving them in their ceramic form, Morling added some black in certain spots to create an illusive effect. Although she calls herself a ‘3D person’, these black drawing plays an important role in Morling’s sculptures, which tricks the viewer’s preconceptions about material and functionality. A toolbox, a bunch of cameras, a miniature horse, a sewing kit, take a look at what we presented here and find more on her website.
