X-Ray Murals Reveal the Architectural Footprint of Razed Buildings

December 15, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This fantastic series of murals entitled the The Nefelejcs Project was painted by a group calling themselves Merge Invisible in Budapest, Hungary with support from the Ludwig Múzeum. Using data from the city archives, information from neighbors and the feint imprint of old structures, the group sought to reconstruct the walls, rooms, and even inhabitants of these forgotten places. Photographs by Preciz Photography.

Swarms

Photographer Thomas Jackson (previously) has been working on a new series of images based on the idea of swarms, shooting large hovering masses of objects in locations around New York. He says the idea is still a work in progress and that some of these photos should just be considered “sketches,” but I think they’re really fantastic already. See them a bit larger on his site.

Pressure Washed Street Art by Strook

December 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Belgian artist and illustrator Stefaan De Croock aka Strook pressure washed this awesome piece on a mossy wall outside of the STUK art center in Leuven. The non-destructive mural is all that more impressive considering it was done completely improvised without a sketch for reference, and it was the first time he’d used pressurized water to boot.
