Photographs Show A Blurry, Bokeh View Of Tokyo by Takashi Kitajima

Photographer Takashi Kitajima has given us a beautifully unfocused night-time view of Tokyo in his photo series, ‘Extra Bokeh’.

He renders the beauty of Tokyo as a sea of colorful spots by capturing the city’s street lamps and lights with macro and telephoto lens.

To create his dreamy photos, Kitajima used a custom-made tilt-shift mount adapter. He also used rubber gloves as it is “very flexible and wonderful”, allowing him to stay steady as he works with long exposures.

3d Marker Drawn Murals and Impressive Installations

Marker Installations by Heike Weber

Raumarbeite: utopia 2007, paintmarker on polystyrol, videoloop 465 x 465 x 270 cm, Transfer Türkiye-NRW, Museum Bochum

Germany-based artist Heike Weber needs only two tools in her work: permanent markers and endless patience. The artist decorates large spaces by tracing thousands of loopy lines on the walls, floor, and sometimes even the ceiling. Some of her installations measure around 5000 ft!

Heike starts her work by drawing the pattern on a sheet of paper, and then transfers it onto the surface. By carefully adjusting the white spaces, she gives a feeling as if the room is swirling. Aren’t you getting dizzy just looking at them?
