Taking paper-cut art to new heights, Hungarian artist Andrea Dezsö created 3D life-size paper-cut portals that transported viewers into another world. Known for her "tunnel books" which are made by individually drawn, cut out, and painted paper that's then layered so that it's stacked one… Continue
Susy Oliveira calls her process "a compromise between sculpture and photography." Using a foam frame, the Toronto-based artist creates three-dimensional pieces that simulate reality in a very distorted, yet intriguing way.
Oliveira examines “our preoccupation with replacing nature with fabricated versions of itself.” She adds that these sculptures express… Continue
German artists Marion Ruthardt and Gregor Vosika created these amazing street art pieces for Nike's "I Run" campaign in Russia. Completed at four different parks in Moscow, the detailed murals give off the optical illusion that runners must overcome challenging obstacles in their path to get to the other side of the road.
Surely, one of the stand out pieces from the new Viva La Revolution show, starting this weekend, will be this incredibly cool 5-story 3D mural from Os Gemeos. The Brazilian twins have created a crazy, cool, colorful piece that's located at the back of Horton Plaza, on the…
In case you missed it, the talk of E3 and the blogosphere these days is the Nintendo 3DS. Why? It's a device that allows for 3D without the glasses. It uses a familiar technology called stereoscopic 3D - the display shows two images, one for each eye to view. When the left and right eyes see each image, the brain processes them together to give the illusion of 3D… Continue
Samsung is pulling out all the stops to market their new 3D LED TV. Back in May, they shocked and surprised us with their cool 3D projection mapping on the historic Beurs van Berlage building in Amsterdam. Now, the projection has been integrated into the first game-take-over on… Continue

Madrid Check out that crash! In order to promote the new Activision Game BLUR, The Viral Agency set up some eye-catching pieces of 3D-perspective street art with the help of internationally renowned artists. Displayed across a selection of European cities including Madrid, Berlin and London, the…
Though we've now seen our fair share of projection mapping, it's one trend that I still can't get enough of. Samsung just recently threw up this installation on an old Amsterdam building. For three nights, they gave those who passed by a free show to promote their new range of 3D LED TVs. Love how they really made use of the building and how they neatly tied up the story with their 3D TV in the end.
Samsung and their creative agencies have been killing it these days with their amazing commercials and this ad called A New Dimension is no exception. Shot all around London as well as in Buenos Aires and Brazil, Samsung showcases their 3D LED TVs in a new and exciting way. The last installation even looks like a high-tech version of a… Continue

I plan to write this short review on How To Train Your Dragon by Dreamworks, and I hope you can excuse my English and poor grammatical skills. I just came back from the theatre and I get so excited just thinking about it. Okay here goes!

When we think of multi-touch right now, the iPhone naturally comes to mind. But really, with such a small screen, there are only so many gestures you can do.
BumpTop greatly expands that roster, and includes several gestures that it claims to have patents for. Basically, they have gestures that use all of you fingers, and both hands, and even the side of hands. You can “lasso” things, “shove” them, “scrunch” them, and “crop” them.
At first glance, it looks like an earthquake destroyed the walls of this building. Amazingly, it's just an optical illusion - even the woman looking inside is fake.
The paintings, which have fooled many, were created by Californian-born artist John Pugh, who specializes in trompe l'oeil or "trick of the eye" art. He works on large scale murals in public and… Continue
I've never seen 3D video projection quite like this. The visualization created on buildings, streets, and cars is unreal. Mad props to Easyweb, a French company that specializes in 3D mapping video. This is their 2009 showreel.
Pictured above is Stephen Molyneaux's creation titled Bernadette. Stephen is a 23 year old British 3D animator artist who uses 3ds max, mental ray, Photoshop, ZBrush to create ultra realistic characters. The amazing thing is the level of detail in his artwork. Here are a few more of his creations.
