This Is Not a Photoshop

Illustration for article titled This Is Not a Photoshop

This morning, Ron van der Ende left me speechless with this. They are not pasted in Photoshop. They are not giant tapes. They are not even painted. They are bas-relief mosaics made with old wood cuts. There are more:

According to Ron van der Ende:

I collect old doors and stuff. Old painted wood that I find in the street. I take it apart and skin it to obtain a 3mm thick veneer with the old paint layers still intact. I construct bas-reliefs that I cover with these veneers much like a constructed mosaic. I do not paint them!

I want some of these so badly. [Ron van der Ende via Motherboard via Obsolete]

Amazing - what do you suppose is recorded on those ridiculously large cassette tapes? Quick, someone grab the elephant-sized tape player out of the jumbo jet storage facility and we can re-live the oldies.

Truly amazing work. What does he do with them after creating them? I assume they are not decorating the walls of his ginormous home? I agree, Jesus - I would love one of these, too.
