You may not often think about how light affects pictures when you”re viewing them. It”s either bright, or it”s not, right? Well, Brooklyn/Barcelona based artist Alex Trochut”s latest installation is here to blow your mind.
His new photo series features art that completely changes when the lights go out using glow in the dark ink. With the lights on, the pictures are tame and unassuming portraits of people and things. When the lights go out though, they become gruff, edgy, and wild.
Trochut says his inspiration for the series came from spending a year living in New York City.
Each image is produced using a combination of glow in the dark and regular ink.
“I tried to find a visual connection between opposites,” said Trochut about the project.
An animated example.
Apparently there”s a remote in the gallery that you can access to create your own light show.
That is some amazingly creative art. If you”re in New York City, you can go check out the show in person at Kinfolk 94 in Brooklyn. Don”t forget to share this story on Facebook by clicking below.
