Watching The Time Go By

A Week of Visual Ingenuity

Timelapse of the Imperceptible Effects of Aging Created from Family Portraits by Anthony Cerniello

In this fascinating video filmmaker Anthony Cerniello has found a new way to document the aging process. Last Thanksgiving Cerniello travelled to his friend Danielle's family reunion and shot still portraits of her youngest cousins through to her oldest relatives. In collaboration with several other artists, he then turned the portraits into this remarkably subtle story of a single woman's life.


Dreamy Architectural Watercolors by Sunga Park

These arcitechtural watercolors from Sunga Park seem to drip and fade out of focus like a dream or a memory. The South Korea-based artist actually works as a wallpaper designer though her watercolors are her true passion.

A Reflective Six-Legged Wolf Covered in Mirror Shards by Tomoko Konoike

Multidisciplinary artist Tomoko Konoike explores various crystalline forms in her sculptures and drawing. The wolf, now extinct in the artists' native Japan, is a powerful symbol in much of her work. A part of her current exhibition Earthshine at Gallery Wendi Norris, this six-legged wolf wrapped in mirror shards is undeniably striking.


Uncanny Aerial and Fashion Photography Mashups by Joseph Ford

It doesn't seem like it should work, but photographer Joseph Ford (in collaboration with art director Stephanie Buisseret and stylist Mario Faundez) has managed to create a stunning juxtaposition between breathtaking aerial landscape photography and the fine details of fashion. Plaid stripes morph into city streets and undulating sand dunes seem to emanate from the folds of a sweater.


Rainbow Pencils Made of Recycled Paper

Duncan Shotton, a Tokyo-based designer known for whimsical functional objects, has just launched a Kickstarter for these awesome Rainbow Pencils. At the core of each pencil is a 6-layer rainbow of recycled paper (not wood). Pencils are available in black or white and will ship before Christmas.


High Speed Flower Explosions by Martin Klimas

The life of a flower usually ends in a slow, inglorious decay. But these flowers, soaked in liquid nitrogen and then blasted with an air gun by photographer Martin Klimas, met their end in an explosion of color.


Nothing is as it Seems: The Art of Illusion at Science Gallery

What would happen if psychologist/author Richard Wiseman curated a show with research assistance from magician and escapologist Paul Gleeson? It seems that the result is a room filled with some of the most amazing contemporary artists working in optical illusion. Illusion, an exploration of the myriad ways the mind is tricked through sensory deception, runs through September 29, 2013.
