Hold still! If you’ve ever tried to sit still for a long period of time, you will notice that it’s nearly impossible, which has made the latest project by Nerhol a fascinating one. The duo, consisting of graphic designer Yoshihisa Tanaka and fine artist Ryuta Iida, asked 27 people to sit still for three minutes while they took high speed shutter pictures of them. Then they stacked all of each subject’s pictures into a pile, then sliced through the layers to show the movements that each made during the three minute span. The result being a blurred portrait; an homage to the life force that is constantly running through one’s veins.
Nerhol has been combining their skills since 2007 to come up with and execute clever ideas like this one. See more of their creative projects on their website and follow them on Facebook and Twitter for their latest updates.
