Too Trippy for Words

Sculptor Gregory Barsamian creates deceptively simple moving sculptures, then uses their movement + strobe lighting to give the illusion of transformation. Video clips on his website show cherubs morphing into helicopters as they fly around the room, human figures emerging from the heads of dreamers, and little guys walking through the pages of a book/cake.

Gregory Barsamian's website (go to the sculptures to see video; be warned that the sculpture "Shuttlecock" is very literal!)

It freaked me out the first time I saw it, 'cause I had no idea what I was looking at.
