Great realistic photo-shopped optical illusions. Impossible structures are often posted to this blog, and they usually appear in two separate forms: either as real camera shots (made under proper angle, with no digital manipulation involved) or they are simply painted and don’t exist in real-life. This version is something in between. I can’t recall we had such a realistic digitally manipulated photos in the past.
Here link to one of his tutorials, where you can see in details how you can create a Never Ending Staircase yourself.
The rainbow fractal Julius tree below was crated with help of the computer program Fractal Imaginator. The tree reminds rounded Pythagoras tree, where squares were replaced to thin rectangles. The tree fractal can be created not only with help of straight lines or rectangles, but also with help of curves and spirals. Below, you can see a title for the High School Course “Gödel, Escher, Bach: A Mental Space Odyssey“ by Justin Curry and Curran Kelleher, where curved fractal tree is used. The spiral was chosen as base element for this fractal, which gives many elegant curls.
This series of photos by Hawken King was inspired by creatures from Escher’s artworks “House of stairs” and “Curl up”. A small strange creature should curl to move forward.
Below you can see the original Escher’s image “Curl up”, where moving of this created is shown in four steps.
