For those who love alternative rock or someone who simply has an ear for good music, who could forget Snow Patrol’s song–Chasing Cars? This “LSS-worthy” music track might even be on your favorite playlist (I have it on mine). Meanwhile, the chorus starts with this all too familiar line, “If I lay here” and this is how it all started for one artist who took the song to a whole new level.

Combining her love for all three– music, photography and travel, artist Karolina Jonderko who describes herself a “visual storyteller” began her project entitled “If I lay here.” According to her, this project has given her the opportunity to travel to her dream destinations, something that she loves to do.

Karolina’s photo series depict the beautiful places she has been to, from Thailand, New York, Iceland and more. It also shows the changes in her appearance including how she uniquely turned every image into such a fine masterpiece. She even had her first ever “If I lay here” exhibition. Cool!

“I began to take self-portraits lying in different places around the world. Sometimes it’s illegal, sometimes people gather around wondering what on earth I am doing, but it’s fun,” she said.

Amazing Sculptures ‘Magically’ Come Alive When Spun Under a Strobe Light

What you see is not always what it seems.

Optical illusions are images that the brain perceives differently from the objective reality. The eye receives information that does not match the physical appearance and measurement of the stimulus source. Often, these illusions are fun to watch. But when such kind of art is coupled with mathematics, it produces magical results.

Take these 3D-printed sculptures for example. Created by John Edmark, an inventor, designer, artist, and lecturer in Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, these works of art become alive when spun under the a strobe light at just the right speed. The rotation speed must be set to match the flashes of the strobe light; that is, the strobe light flashes each time the sculpture rotates at 137.5º.

So aside from the strobe light and the well-calculated rotation speed, what makes these scuptures unique?
