20 Photos Of Reflections That Will Blow You Away

“Sometimes there is so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can’t take it.”

Remember that famous line from the Oscar winner “American Beauty”? Ricky Fitts was quite a dramatic character, but his words ring true. There is a lot of beauty in the world if you take the time to slow down and notice it.

These 20 photos could be ordinary scenes if it weren’t for the magnificent reflections in ponds, puddles, and even cups of coffee! After seeing them, you might find yourself looking at your surroundings in a whole new way.

These 10 CGI Works Of Art Are Just Too Creepy To Handle

Computer-generated imagery, or CGI, is an awesome technology that has allowed us to create amazingly realistic simulations in movies, video games, and more.

But while CGI enables us to produce cool effects, it can also inspire some people to bring the dark scenes in their heads to life. Let’s just say that these scenes, some of which you can see below, are completely freaky.

Prepare yourselves, because we’re about to take a journey down the rabbit hole.

1. Their smiles make me shudder.

This Sculpture Changes Before Your Eyes. You Need To See It To Believe It.

Artist Thomas Medicus did not just want to create one painting. Instead, the Austrian artist created something between a painting and a sculpture that changes depending on how it’s viewed. 

Emulsifier is composed of 160 glass strips, and each strip is painted on all four sides with pieces of different images. Depending on what side of the four-sides sculpture you’re standing on, you’ll see one of four images. A fish and a stork make up two, and the stork’s and fish’s interior views make up the other two.

Viewed from the top, Emulsifier appears to be a series of narrow glass panes with scattered fragments of paint.

 Besides painting on glass to blow our minds, Medicus also works as a graphic designer, illustrator and animator, as well as a musician.
