    just beautiful.

  • Sammy

    Beautiful. I like the 3-Demensionality of it.
    I think that gives it it’s uniqueness.

  • makemeasandwich

    I wonder if different filiment types or different lighting would make them less visible ?

  • 13Mavrick13

    As out there in concept, design, composition and construction, with balance of subjects and great utilization of materials. I LIKE IT!!!!!

  • Anthony Pittarelli

    im sooo confused, but this is sooo awesome

  • Joe

    I just got a cool idea. What if you photographed these in stereographic! You know, when you take two pictures then play them back and forth fast so it looks 3D. that’d be awesome…

  • http://home-bodies.net/wordpress/ Pat Bartels

    I don’t normally leave comments, but this is awesome.

  • http://www.ukbusinesslink.co.uk/ Samantha Wright

    These are amazing, it really does manipulate the mind. Where do you source your inspiration from?

  • rachillin

    Brilliant really and such a lovely plane of strawberries it is… It’s like a dream!

  • Sarah

    Wow.. these are beautiful. I couldn’t have even imagined these in my wildest dreams. I really like the strawberry one the best. It took me a minute to realize that these were real, and not photo edits! They are done perfectly.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin


One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
