It's Friday. It's the summer time. We should have some fun. So, for your enjoyment I have put together a collection of links that could best be described as eye candy. Check them out.
Part One: Optical Illusions Here is a photo set of pictures from a trippy building. At first it looks like someone randomly painted strange colors and lines all over the walls, but when viewed from a precise angle something neat happens. Also, check out this elevator illusion.
Part Two: Paper Sculptures Some fabulous construction paper sculptures. That link will provide you with your daily dose of bright colors. This link has paper sculptures that are less colorful but are much more intricate and very cool. These are called paperworks and they are sculptures crafted from cuts of paper.
Part 3: Beautiful Flash Be warned, these are stunning and addictive. Check out these games by Ferry Halim. Any one of these games will send you into a dream like state of wonder. I especially like the train jumper game and Pocketful of Stars. But there are enough here to keep you busy until 5 o'clock rolls around.
Do you have a similarly pleasing link to share? Post it in the comments!
As far as optical illusions go, I'm still amazed by Julian Beever every time I see photos of his art. Wow.
Those are amazing. I'd really need to see one on the street to believe it. Even then I might not be able to.
