I saw this cool item in WebUrbanist today, about photographer Jamie Beck and her videographer partner Kevin Burg’s weird art pieces that consist of still images with just a hint of video. The effect really is quite interesting; you owe it to yourself to click through to see more examples: Moving Pictures: Stunning Photographs Brought to Life.

As a certified Weepies-holic, I really enjoyed this:
This making-of video was interesting, too:
Say what you will about the literacy of the latest generation, they’ve got fair cartooning skills. That’s the impression I get from this item, at least, which shows a sign near a shower at a US military installation in Iraq, with three images representing the same proscribed activity. From Neatorama: Iraq shower rules.
From Aaron/Hiro: POVCOMP 2004: Viewing page for top 25 entries.
From E46Fanatics: Coolest thing ever, Half-life in real life. I’d call what they’re doing “Photoshopping,” except it appears no Photoshop was involved. Anyway, it’s impressive.
Check out the gallery of Robert & Shana ParkeHarrison. Funky, dark stuff. But interesting.

Update: Original image appears to be dead, but here’s the logo that lent it its humor:
Here’s the response that was produced by Ishar-user Bravo posting a particular URL:
Yian says, “oh, my eyes”
Yian says, “oh, my brain, seared with images that should never be”
Danthar says to Bravo, “awezome.”
Hiro says to Bravo, “So wrong.”
With that said, here you go. But remember, you have been warned: Candidates in drag.
From some web page in a language I can’t understand, a collection of really cool-looking aerial photographs: Link.
Update: Per commenter Daniel, these images are actually the work of French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Many more images, and different-sized versions, are available from Arthus-Bertrand’s Earth from above site.
Not really magic, but Janus likes to think of it that way, which is good enough for my topic-selection purposes. Anyway, if you like those stereo-isogram thingies where you fuse the two images to make a three-dimensional picture pop off the page, here’s one rendered entirely in ASCII: stereo.txt. Complete with an uplifting message crafted just for obsessives who spend time weblogging when they should be doing something more productive.
