Real Cities Become Floating Islands in the Sky

Tuesday 11.13.2012 , Posted by

If you remember the 80s cult classic The NeverEnding Story, you’ll recall the desperate part of the film when the world of Fantasia begins to crumble away, leaving little more than a small island of rock remaining to stand on. Now, award-winning art director Reinhard Krug has created a series of imagination gripping images which seem to bring that story to our world, manipulating aerial photographs of major cities so they appear to be floating on rock. Here the resemblance to the NeverEnding Story ends, however as Krug’s images are far more serene – placing the cities gently in a sky of puffy clouds. [Read more...]

Join In On the Photoshop Battles

Thursday 10.18.2012 , Posted by

Photoshop was one of my favorite procrastination tools in college. Anytime I had an important paper to write or test to study for, I would use it to superimpose my head on to Sports Illustrated swimsuit models’ bodies for Spring Break motivation. Unfortunately I never reached the skill level of these talented Redditors. If you are a photoshop expert or just enjoy the magical humor that photoshoppers bring, allow me to introduce you to an amazing sub-reddit: r/photoshopbattles. [Read more...]

Out of Place: Bizarre Manipulations Around Town

Thursday 10.11.2012 , Posted by

There’s always a bit of humor in the work of Robert Rickhoff. What at first seems like normal, even mundane pictures of the world, turn out to be fun juxtapositions of everyday objects – objects he’s digitally moved to places highly impractical for actual use. Urinals hang suspended on toilet walls, only accessible by a climbing wall; suburban streets are built with high speed jumps; and a volleyball court is placed in the center of a divided highway.

Mysterious Houses Take Flight

Thursday 07.26.2012 , Posted by

Architecture, by its very nature, is grounded. Not so the strange flying buildings of Paris based artist Laurent Chehere. His series Flying Houses sees the rectangular structures take off, leaving their terrestrial domain to soar in the clouded skies above. The photo-manipulated images serve to feed Chehere’s interest in architecture, lifting it off its normal realm and showing off its hidden beauty. His work cuts away all the normal clutter, removes the anonymity of a normal house so that we can appreciate it as an individual unit. [Read more...]

Post-Apocalyptic Worlds Go Green

Tuesday 07.24.2012 , Posted by

Most films which depict the world after an apocalyptic battle or disaster look something like the scenes of a Mad Max flick – the Australian outback or the Nevada high desert. In other words, something appropriately bone-dry, fitting of a scorched wasteland created by nuclear war or an exploding volcano. Not so the digital artworks of Nick Pedersen. His images appear downright tranquil, flipping the whole notion of apocalypse on its head and creating an image of the potential future that makes the catalyst for the apocalypse looks something a lot like western civilization.
