Monster Trucks!

 
 

Artist Keith Loutit combined two techniques – tilt-shift and time-lapse photography – to create a “dreamy” impression of the monster trucks rally in Brisbane, Australia. In tilt-shift photography, objects are made to appear small and toylike by altering the camera’s lens to narrow the image’s depth of field – the portion of a scene that appears sharp. By running together 15,000 of these still photos – taken over three hours at the event in November – he created a magical time-lapse animation that has earned plaudits across the web. The self-taught artist’s videos, including footage of swimmers at Bondi Beach in Sydney produced using a similar technique, have attracted huge numbers of views on video-sharing websites such as Vimeo.

Rocky Davies’ Florescent Mash-ups Feature 1980’s Villains On Fictional Album Covers

rockydavies-1 rockydavies-3 rockydavies-2 rockydavies-7

For fans of pop-culture mash-ups, Rocky Davies has an amusing  throwback for you. The artist takes iconic villains of the 1980’s and fuses them with the music of the same era. Its outcome is a bizarre series of fictional album covers. Using fonts and colors that are reminiscent of the time, Davies creates slick designs that channel a darker version of Lisa Frank art.

The stark black backgrounds give way to fluorescent accents, and nearly all of his designs feature his subjects wearing Wayfarer sunglasses. Looking impossibly cool, these characters intermingle with bold, geometric patterns and a lot of lens flare. Lyrics from songs like the Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)are designed around the floating head portraits and take on a new meaning.

Davies’ series comes at the right time. It’s no doubt nostalgic, and it speaks to those who were coming of age in the 80’s. There’s enough time between their popularity and present day for people to realize how borderline cheesy these things were. These fake album covers are both an homage and poke fun at an era of visual excess. (Via Brother Tedd)

Ghosts & Other Practical Visual Jokes

Robert Gligorov’s  work attempts to shock the viewer. Each piece tantalizes the imagination, awakening it from a state of lethargy. Confronting a society accustomed to sophisticated and extreme forms of visual communication, Gligorov amplifies the shock value of his work in order to compete with the deluge of images that cloud our visual field. Gligrov  lives and works in Milan, Italy and is represented by Aeroplastics Contemporary in Belgium,  and Galerie Pascal Vanhoecke in Paris. More images of his work after the jump.

Alena Beljakova’s Mysterious, Cinematic Photographs

 

So, according to her Flickr page, Alena Beljakova is only 19 years old. Wow. That’s a pretty young age for someone capable of producing photos like these. Impressive. There’s a mysterious, cinematic quality to the Saint Petersburg photographer’s work, and I wasn’t exactly surprised to find that  she’s a ruski. There must be something about Russia’s cold winters and massive, partially barren landscape that lends itself to art that is in touch with the dark intangibles of the world. Definitely gonna keep an eye on this one. (via)
