Last supper painted on skateboards, features Mexican wrestlers

“The Last Fiesta” has been painted on lines of the last supper, except the part where it is painted on skateboard decks. Also, there’s another little difference; Christ and the apostles have been replaced with masked Mexican wrestlers. There is no proof so we assume a no-holds barred match followed the last fiesta. The painting is the creation of Chris Parks.

String and nails installation salutes computer loadscreens of the ancient age

Danish design studio Dark Matters has created this installation that takes viewers back to loadscreens that you might have seen a decade or two ago on your computers. The videos come across as screensavers, and this type used to be very popular during that time, because nobody wanted to see the flying windows.

Photographing bureaucrats around the world

Behind all those colors, cultures, races and regions, there is one man who just refuses to change. No matter what part of the world you are in, you will run into this person. Even if it is a different race, color or region, bureaucrats are all the same, perhaps a result of their close proximity to politicians. Dutch photographer Jan Banning traveled the world, going through numerous countries, and photographing bureaucrats their. The photographer visited eight countries; Bolivia, China, France, India, Liberia, Russia, the United States, and Yemen. Showing unannounced at the doors, the photographer never gave the bureaucrats a chance to tidy up the offices or change appearances. Some of these images are surprising and eye openers, to say the least.

Call of Duty screenshots used to depict the horrors of modern warfare

Photographs of wars and soldiers on missions have been around, probably ever since the camera met the printing paper. War photographs from Thibault Brunet however, do not include the photographer venturing into dangerous war zones, or for that matter, even soldiers don’t need to be at the front for these photographs. Brunet has chosen a very unique medium for his photographs, which basically are screenshots from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Photographing the sky in puddles

When looking at the sky, you keep your eyes up. But if you’re photographer Ingrid Nelson, you look at the ground and see the sky in an entirely different way. Pavement Trees, a series of photographs by Nelson gives glimpses of the sky by looking at puddles in a parking lot. The images show the beauty of the sky, but also inevitably catch elements from the puddles, adding to their charm.

Ghosts seen, captured in light paintings

The ghostly figures floating in these photos aren’t supernatural, they are the result of well executed light paintings. Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott started off their project 12:31 which made use of a laptop and a video showing the cross section of the human body for light painting. In creating these photographs, the animation ran full screen on a computer and an assistant moved it around in a dark environment, ultimately leading to these spooky long-exposure shots. More images and the video of the animation after the jump.
