Shattered Mirror Photographic Series

Sometimes all you need is a new way to look at your everyday surroundings. That is what photographer Bing Wright has accomplished with his series Broken Mirror/Evening Sky.

These images have the look of stained glass, and each one captures a different color combination and pattern – depending on where the cracks in the mirror break up the sky. It is a unique way to present something that we can see almost every day and it is visually captivating.

River Giants: A Photographic Series by Jack Long

We’ve all seen water droplet photography, and the unique shapes you can capture at high speeds when dealing with liquid. But this photo series by Jack Long presents these shots in a new way.

He calls the series River Giants. When you look at the images, no doubt the first thing that comes to mind is that these water shapes look a lot like jelly fish — or at least some sort of ocean creature. Long has perfected the timing of these shots to be sure to capture the shapes of these giants.

No two could ever be the same, but with the variety of colors and shapes Long has certainly put together an awesome series of giants to fear next time you’re down by the river!

Photographs of 50-Year-Old Identical Twins Show How We Age

We are always fascinated by artistic studies that investigate the science behind humans. This photographic series does just that.

Photographer Gao Rongguo took photographs of 50-year-old twins standing face-to-face, to show the similarities and differences of how we age. From their physical features, to the differences in their hair styles and wardrobe, these photos provide a contrasting look at the way life changes people.

As if looking into a mirror, Rongguo says the portraits were set up to show how “He/she used to have the same face, living in the same family, but their lives changed due to various reasons after growing up.”

Take a look at some more twins below!

Typographic Desks

On our theme of typography this week, we’ve found another unique place to incorporate words and letters.

Discovered on Benoit Challand‘s portfolio, Fold Yard desks would be the perfect addition to any company’s office. Even if you aren’t involved with design, you can appreciate these typographic desks as an alternative to the regular cubicle lifestyle!

Your desk could be its own unique shape, plus be part of a curated layout – for instance a letter of the company name, or each employee’s initial. The possibilities are endless!

Light Paintings Based on That Which Can be Heard or Felt but not Seen

Light painting has been around for years and it takes a special artist to be able to put a new spin on the technique. Which is exactly what Patrick Rochon has done.

These images were created based on invisible realities. As Rochon explains, “I’ve been fascinated by what we can’t see. Like the shape of sounds, energy, vibrations, feelings, the photons our bodies emits. Light is invisible until it touches something. Vibrations made by our voices have the most intricate shapes as we can see with cymatics.”

So he took this fascination and worked on this series to depict these realities. He says he works in complete darkness to create the images, and uses music to let his body and the sound move him (internally and externally).

This series is currently on display in Calgary, Canada but can be seen on his website as well.

Microscopic Images: Eerily Fascinating

No matter what you put under a microscope, it’s going to look a little strange. From something as simple as a lily (above) to something as in-depth as the wiring of the human brain, microscopic photographs let us see the colors, textures, pores and bumps that we can’t see with our own eyes alone. And it is eerily fascinating.

The Wellcome Image Awards are a competition for just such photos, and we have some of the winners for you to take a look at here. A lot of the images were taken using a technique called Electron Microscopy. This is a process to capture an image with a beam of electrons, rather than a beam of light. The electrons interact with the subject to create the image we see in the end.

Some other techniques used in creating these images include X-ray projection, light micrographs and standard photography, among others.

Ice Typography

We are big fans of typography (don’t believe us? Just check out our Pinterest account).

If you’re with us on that, you’ll love this ice typography by Nicole Dextras! It is exactly what you think, words written with letters made from ice. What makes it extra cool is that the words suit the locations, and the locations range from the Yukon River to downtown Toronto.

As well, the letters are 3D, different colors, and vary in size from 8 feet tall to 18 inches tall. Visit her website to learn more about the process she took to create her typography!

High-Voltage Photographs Resemble Blood Vessels in the Retina

Photographer Phillip Stearns took the notion that the camera is an extension of the eye and applied it literally to this photographic series.

He took household chemicals such as bleach, vinegar, baking soda, and rubbing alcohol and applied them to instant color film. These chemicals, combined with exposure and some 15,000 volts of alternating current, create these layered and detailed patterns across the film.

Stearns says of the final product, “I find it curious and exhilarating that the impressions left behind after developing these extreme exposures so perfectly resemble networks of blood vessels in the retina.” And we can’t help but agree — something that so resembles a science experiment produces such beautiful images and colors.

Take a look at a few more images below!

Anatomical Collage Art by Travis Bedel

There isn’t much we can say (or need to) about these anatomical collages by Travis Bedel other than, “Wow.”

These images are created by cutting and pasting vintage artworks onto anatomical, biological and botanical images and illustrations. We are continuously surprised and impressed by the ways that science and art can be combined.

What Could be Better Than Camping in a Treehouse?

Okay, maybe not what you would picture for traditional camping, but it still counts.

This treehouse, designed by Farrow Partnership Architects, is intended to be one of 12 houses installed in an eco-resort near Toronto, Canada. They are open concept, so that you are one with nature, but still sheltered so that you can have the luxury of a 5-star resort while “camping.”

And that’s not all — they are also environmentally friendly so that the trees that support them are not strained or damaged. The houses are suspended from many branches above, rather than having all the weight on the trunk or using braces from the ground (cheating, for a “tree house”).

Check out the images below to see more of the amazing interior and functional design!
