Stunning Anamorphic Artworks That Can Only Be Seen With A Mirror Cylinder
A year ago, we wrote about Jonty Hurwitz and his amazing anamorphic art that can only be seen in the reflection of a mirrored cylinder. Although the technique was created in the late Renaissance (16th century), artist like Jonty and István Orosz made it popular again.
What’s interesting about these anamorphic pieces is that most of them look like rubbish without a mirror cylinder. Some of them are so distorted that you can only guess at what the reflected image will reveal. You could probably even use this technique to pass a message on to a fellow secret agent.
Hurwitz says he creates his art by scanning a three-dimensional object and then using special software to come up with new physical forms, but each artist has their own technique.
Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)
The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.
If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves
Assassin’s Creed screams in the distance
ooh! I know what I want Santa to bring me for Christmas…
I STEPPED ON A FUCKING LEAF AND AT THE SAME TIME SOME KID SCREAMED I THOUGHT IT WAS THE FUCKIN LEAF OMG

What if it bites me and it dies?
that means you’re poisonous. jesus christ, nate, learn to read.
What if it bites itself and I die?
What if it bites me and someone else dies?
That’s correlation, not causation.
what if we bite each other and neither of us die
oh my god
