Hey people! Remember this? Artist’s name is Desiree Palmen, and we posted some of her camouflage photos loooong time ago (they can be found here). Well, the Dutch artist who lives and works in Rotterdam and whose many pieces are based around the idea of camouflage has released some new stuff! What you see below is called “The act of being unseen and undetected”. To create the site specific suits, Palmen photographs a precise location. She then paints the image of the place onto a suit by hand, and some person then wears the finished suit, while posing in the original location – trying to blend into the space as much as possible. Should place this one inside Body Paint category? Or transparent one should be more related… hm?

    FIRST sweet :D this is a pretty good piece but I don’t think its as good as Deseree’s other stuff. I think the second one is the best.

    I must say, those are really cool. I have seen more of these on your site (which is awesome by the way) but these are by far the most impressive IMO.

    Second is best. really nice

  8. Matt says:

    Uh, to be honest. I just think these are horrible. They don’t even camouflage. The second, I have to say is quite good, but the first and third are not even illusions.
