We’ve seen plenty of beautiful images of cities shining in the night. But there’s hardly any that would show what these cities look like at night without the lights.

Virginia-based artist Susan Noyes makes use of simple razor blades, and arranges them into beautiful patterns I never thought could come from those wicked sharp thingies. It’s almost like a moment of zen for me right now. Also, if you scroll through the top three images first slowly, and then at some speed, it gets kind of trippy. Cool! Noyes uses a variety of blades and graph paper to achieve the result, and the repeated geometric patterns placed intricately do the rest of the work.
Our recognition of comic book characters is well developed enough to recognize them from just abstract colors and shapes.
