Kind of a funny forced perspective photograph I came across a while back and put in a folder for future post ideas. It certainly looks like the man in the forefront (the purple giant?) is significantly taller than everyone else around him. He is standing on some sort of ledge closer to the camera than […]
This interesting sculpture called Squaring the Circle was created in 2013 by Troika, the UK-based artist group consisting of Conny Freyer, Eva Rucki and Sebastien Noel. Watch the video below shot at the Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles, California to see how these CNC bent steel tubes (measuring 54 3/4 x 54 3/4 x 30 1/2 inches) form […]
Why is this plane flying so low to the ground? It looks like an extremely dangerous maneuver. The plane is actually flying high above the ground. What appears to be the plane’s “shadow” is a lake far below in the background. This image was provided courtesy of Robert Ausbourne.
Happy New Year everyone! It is difficult to believe that it is already 2015. I thought we would kick off the new year with something light and a little humorous. The person who took this photograph likely did not know exactly what they had captured until they took a look at the picture later. It […]
Using the same type of style employed by British artist Patrick Hughes, Brusspup created this mind-boggling video featuring a poster dedicated to the game Minecraft (a game about breaking and placing blocks). As you move to the left and right it looks like the elements of the poster are moving and following you in some […]
In this new twist on an old optical illusion, two spaceships can be seen flying through a wormhole. The spaceship in the front appears to be significantly smaller (maybe half as big?) than the one behind it. Surprisingly, however, both spaceships are the exact same size. The wings of the spaceship in the back are […]
While this video from Apple is probably a tad bit too long, it does feature some pretty good anamorphic optical illusion tricks. The video is captured from a single camera moving around a sterile white room in what appears to be a single take. The style of this commercial is reminiscent of Ok Go’s recent […]
