Trace Heavens / Light installations by artist James Nizam

Shard of Light, 2011

“Trace Heavens” is a series of gorgeous light installations by James Nizam. Even though he is a friend of mine I feel I am being completely unbiased when I say these are some of the most beautiful images I’ve ever posted on Booooooom. To create these images James painstakingly made incisions into the structure of a house to capture and manipulate sunlight into light sculptures.

  • Taylor Barringer

    wow

  • casey

    These are absolutely beautiful-

    • i think it takes a little bit to really appreciate the amount of time it took to make these

  • Gorgeous. But I have no idea what’s happening. Are those beams of light?? They seem so solid

  • Shaya

    i’ve never seen anything like this. ever never never

  • Morgan

    these are the crazy awesomest.

  • the_jackalope

    awesome!

  • they are beams of light – really long exposures im sure

    • i dont think so. there no changing of angle of the occuring lightrays and as you can see in the pictures they use sunlight. so long exposure would cause unprecise rays.

  • Michelle Moy

    wow, I haven’t see art this amazing in a long time..

  • lepetitfaon

    dear lord, so gorgeous and also such a technical achievement, I really wish I could have the second one in my bedroom, its exactly the type of thing I’d never grow tired of looking at 

  • this is amazing, cant imagine how long this must have taken to setup. what blows me away is the consistency of the beam, how he managed to reflect and still keep the size of the light beam the same. really completes the illusion of a physical sculpture.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
