Fabric Wrapped Trees

December 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Welsh-born artist and photographer Olsen Zander has been wrapping trees in white fabric around the UK for the better part of a decade. In this series entitled Tree, Line, Zander uses the fabric to reveal the horizon lines as they disappear behind the surface of trees. Really amazing work. If you liked this, also check out the mirrored tree installations of Joakim Kaminsky and Maria Poll. (via it’s nice that)

This shot from photographer Joeri Bosma caught my eye. He’s based out of the Netherlands and his work reminds me somewhat of Nicholas Max and Egor Shapovalov.

I’m loving the symmetry created in these mirror photographs of urban China by Austrian designer and photographer Atelier Olschinsky. See the entire series here, and his recently published illustrations entitled Game Zone are pretty mind-blowing as well.

Designer Marco Ugolini demonstrates the proper way to hold a poster within a poster within a poster etc. Via his web site:

The Cyclotrope is an ingenious short animation by Tim Wheatley. By affixing a sequence of 18 objects to the wheel and rotating at just the right speed the illusion of animation is created. Excuse me while I dismantle my neighbor’s bicycle.

A brilliant optical illusion bookshelf designed by Clarke Hopkins Clarke which reminds me of Lara Knutson’s three string shelf. (via mocoloco)
