By cutting, reconfiguring, and layering images, artist Rusty Scruby produces his 3D photo-based works. The three-dimensional photographic reconstructions utilize multiple copies of the same image to display the shot in a new, transformed way.

Legendary TV host Dick Clark and his wife are selling their home in Malibu for $3.5 million. Normally, a celebrity selling a piece of real estate in California is nothing to write about, but, in this case, it's nearly impossible not to share images of the media tycoon's Flintstones-inspired house.

Landmarks Layered into a Collective Memory

The Sydney Opera House

At first it seems like these images by Spanish photographer Pep Ventosa are very quickly sketched line drawings of highly visited tourist locations. However, don’t be fooled!

Human Skull Carved from Books

Maskull Lasserre has brought new life, or death in this case, to old computer manuals with his amazingly intricate sculpture of a human skull. Lasserre's work explores "the unexpected potential of the everyday through allegories of value, expectation, and utility."

Matthew Weatherstone's oil paintings and charcoal works in his series "The Disconnect" elegantly illustrate his theme with soft color palettes and smooth images.

Dreamy Freeze Frame Paintings



Swiss artist Andy Denzler depicts a hazy, abstract world in these oil on canvas paintings. The works are a collection of muted scenes, distorted by smears of brushstrokes and blurs of paint. Viewing his work is like trying to draw on a fuzzy memory or make sense of a low-resolution photograph on a computer screen.
