(photography but i think its kinda universal)
this is pretty cool and cheap
I know they’re chintzy but the optical illusions in this video are pretty amazing and make your eyes do weird things after. Check it out!
Two students, Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi, used CT scans and x-rays to create intimate portraits of couples.
Things they never taught you at art school/illustration school. Some things to keep in mind as we progress through studios and classes.
Bradley Hard, an artist out of New York, creates portraits by injecting acrylic paint into bubble wrap.
The only bubble wrap I wouldn’t want to pop.
Ignore the “paranormal” aspect of this, and it’s really interesting.
These are light paintings done with a long exposure and a dark room. Super interesting and the medium has a lot of potential if you have patience.
These two have collaborated on two different books, both of which I believe constitute as art as well.
The first was “The Pop-Up Book of Phobias” which is exactly what it sounds like. It has multiple pages of pop-ups of worst fears, all constructed with care and intellect, as well as creativity by Reinhart. (The claustrophobia page doesn’t allow the book to open entirely, leaving a cramped view of an elevator.) Greenberg writes the blurbs about each fear, giving definition, while Reinhart sculpts the paper designs.
The second book is a similar idea, named “The Pop-Up Book of Nightmares.” It is a little darker than the first, depicting common nightmare themes (giving birth, falling, being chased) in a pop-up paper sculpture. However this book is more informative, not only defining what can constitute in that category of nightmare (i.e. Giving birth – giving birth to something alien or an animal, or a deformed child, giving birth out of unusual body parts, or having incompetent doctors while giving birth.) but lays out definition as to why these nightmares may be occurring.

And here is the paper sculptor’s:
