Mind bending sculptures in nature make me question my reality

Whoa. Benjamin Ducroz’s Spinning Daggers installation places totally trippy wooden zoetrope sculptures next to trees and the effect is pretty mind melting. It’s really interesting to see nature next to these man made objects that move in ways that are totally unnatural and yet so very natural all at the same time. » 6/12/15 8:31am 6/12/15 8:31am

Trippy drone video wrecks brains by flipping the world upside down

I don't know why this is so unsettling. The eerie music and the fact that the drone is taking footage from abandoned places doesn't help but it's also mostly because the world is literally flipped upside down and my normally aligned brain can't begin to process that without melting a little bit. » 2/06/15 12:41am 2/06/15 12:41am

Watching people play with magical Kinetic Sand is so freaking trippy

I didn't have a clue that Kinetic Sand existed. This Swedish invention is made of 98-percent sand and two-percent sorcery, so it sticks to itself and nothing else, allowing you to cut it clean. And then it feels like it moves on its own, which is creepy. Like some weird matter that is alive. » 10/08/14 7:12pm 10/08/14 7:12pm

Murakami turned a Pharrell music video into an anime-style video game

Here's the official music video for Pharrell Williams' latest single "It Girl". It's a visual trip that combines lovely anime and nostalgia inducing 8-bit video games with the always colorful imagination of artist Takashi Murakami.

Some people go to the beach to take a dip in the water and get some sun. Jamie Harkins goes to the beach to take a journey to another world. Harkins is a fantastic artist who transforms a beach into alternate realities by creating 3D sand art.

Whoa, this biker looks like he's trapped inside a video game level

What a tricky mind trip. Though it looks like this fixed gear biker is playing a video game or stuck inside a M.C. Escher drawing or a part of an optical illusion, he's actually riding on a real bike course made with real ramps and doing real jumps. It just looks crazy from our perspective » 4/30/14 11:39pm 4/30/14 11:39pm

Amazing trick will distort your vision and make you hallucinate

This is the most incredible visual trick I've ever seen, one that will make your entire reality melt—literally deforming everything in front of your eyes, shrinking and expanding objects around you. It's mind-glowingly trippy (WARNING: Don't try this if you are epileptic. It may cause seizures.) » 4/06/14 1:59pm 4/06/14 1:59pm

Crazy camera trick takes the Hitchcock zoom to a whole new LSD level

You know the Hitchcock zoom effect: A camera on a dolly moves back or forward as the lenses zoom in or out, changing the field of view. French photographer Micaël Reynaud has created a new variation of the technique—which you can see above—combining the dolly zoom with slit-scan photography. » 4/01/14 7:42pm 4/01/14 7:42pm

You can stretch out these fake marble sculptures like a slinky

Yes, like a slinky. These marble-looking sculptures that look like they're from Ancient Greece are actually completely malleable, deformable, slinky-like art pieces. You see, the sculptures are made from thousands of sheets of paper to appear solid when still. When you tug at the sculpture though, you can stretch it… » 2/06/14 12:01am 2/06/14 12:01am

The images in this video can actually screw up your brain and vision

I squinted my eyes and covered the screen and looked away when I was watching this video by Tom Scott because I don't want to have colored vertical and horizontal lines ingrained in my vision because my brain got fried from staring too long at the images in the video. So I suggest you do the same and look away. No,… » 1/27/14 11:23pm 1/27/14 11:23pm
