garbage ship shadow illusionDue to author’s request, we had to remove the video in our previous post, and were instructed to replace it with original YouTube’s embeddable code. It isn’t my preferred choice (not to have our self hosted video player), but what’s important is that you can still see the flick.

On the other hand, I have received this magnificent installation, one that greatly resembles Tim Nobel and Sue Webster’s optical illusion opus. Check the garbage formation. It doesn’t resemble to anything meaningful. But cast a light on it from certain point of projection, and the marvelous sailing ship magically appears.

Many shadow illusions can be seen if you follow the #shadow tag, but what’s more staggering (for me) is how you didn’t like the Trashy @ Sign Shadow. Perhaps because it was put aside to our new iPad App?

    Unfortunately, the ship in the shadows appears to be a barque and not a junk :P

  • Andrew

    That’s pretty cool, but I don’t think that I’d have the patience for making something like that.

  • Chris

    personally, i like the you tube video player better. it shows up on the itouch.

  • That’s really neat! There is no idea that a heap of garbage could turn into something so beautiful. It boggles the mind, yes indeed, yes indeed.

  • Care Bear

    They’re beautiful but I’m starting to think some people have way too much time on their hands.

  • David

    It is hard to believe that that shadow is cast by that garbage.

  • MTSzabo

    They wanted the YT player because they had monitized the video.

  • tinkerer

    um………well, that’s cool, but i just don’t see how that could cast such a shadow.

    I’ve always been fond of shadow art, I wonder how much time goes into any one of these >.>…

  • The reason why I didn’t like the ‘@’ illusion… is because I didn’t realize it was an illusion! I thought it was just the ‘@’ sign printed onto a piece of paper, only used to be relevant to the post.

    These illusions are very impressive!

    I know this art installation. This is called ‘One Cannot Cut The Sea’ by a very clever man: Shigeo Fukuda.

      Well, that’s how you get out of Davy Jone’s locker.
