A number of jaw-dropping stencil works from the past few months by French artist Christian Guémy aka C215 seen on the streets of Barcelona and Berlin. C215 has been an active street artist for over 20 years, his first stencils going up around 2006 and according to Street Art London his daughter is now following in his footsteps making her own 2 layer stencils.

Multi-Perspective Shadow Sculptures

At face value these small hand-carved wooden sculptures by scientist and artist John V. Muntean appear to be a random amalgam of mixed geometric shapes, curves and holes, but shine a light at the right angle and suddenly in the objects shadow is a discernable image. In fact, each sculpture contains three images, usually revolving around a theme. Via his website:

A Magic Angle Sculpture appears to be nothing more than an abstract wooden carving, skewered with a rod and mounted on a base. However, when lit from above and rotated at the magic angle (54.74º) it will cast three alternating shadows. Every 120º of rotation, the amorphous shadows evolve into independent forms. Our scientific interpretation of nature often depends upon our point of view. Perspective matters.

Muntean has numerous videos showing how each piece works, I definitely recommend spending a few minutes poking around. You can also follow along via his blog, and inquire about purchasing a piece. (via neatorama)

In his continued experiments with water photography Markus Reugels (previously) has developed a method of releasing precisely timed water drops that collide to form pillar-like structures. The setup involves three perfectly synchronized valves and three individual gel-covered flashes that all fire in sequence with the camera’s shutter to create the images you see here. Wild stuff.

Spanish visual artist Ana Soler is known for working with a multitude of objects from dangling hundreds of pairs of scissors or spoons, to creating dense clouds of string, coins, and paper cranes. In her most recent work, Causa-Efecto (Cause & Effect), she hung 2,000 tennis balls in spaces throughout the Mustang Art Gallery in Alicante, Spain. The balls are carefully aligned in suspended trajectories that appear to bounce off walls, floors, and other surfaces providing an uncanny sense of motion similar to a photograph taken with a strobe light. See much more on Soler’s fancy Flash website. (via collabcubed)
