    It does look amazing, but I’ve seen so many people using this “layer” technique I don’t know what to think..

  • AJR

    Cheap thrills. Clever but shallow. The visual art equivalent of a tech demo. A project does not make a practice.

    • i’ve never seen this before and i look at the Internet everyday. consider for a moment this is someone else’s work you are so quickly writing off. another person, just trying to make something. i’ll never understand the motivation to leave a condescending comment like this. cheers.

    • asmodi

      As art is the viewer’s experience, I don’t understand this comment. There’s plenty to read in this work. You’ve just not done so.
