Using the long exposure setting on his camera and an LED light, Pasadena, California-based artist Darren Pearson, aka Darius Twin (previously featured here), spends his nights creating awesome light paintings depicting a host of wonderful creatures which look like ghosts made of light. Each piece takes between two and five minutes to create.
In 2011, Moebius was hired by fragrance company Hermès to create nine illustrations for a new line called Voyage d’Hermes. They would be a part of a wide marketing campaign to promote the line, including this commercial based somewhat on these drawings. Three of these images are direct recreations of scenes from various Aedena stories featuring Stel & Atan.

Side Note: The two images shown above are mere crop outs from ESA’s recent hit: The 9 Billion Pixel Image of 84 Million Stars. These two focus on the bright center of the image for the purpose of highlighting what a peak at 84,000,000 stars looks like.
Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory in Chile have released a breathtaking new photograph showing the central area of our Milky Way galaxy. The photograph shows a whopping 84 million stars in an image measuring 108500×81500, which contains nearly 9 billion pixels.
It’s actually a composite of thousands of individual photographs shot with the observatory’s VISTA survey telescope, the same camera that captured the amazing 55-hour exposure. Three different infrared filters were used to capture the different details present in the final image.
The VISTA’s camera is sensitive to infrared light, which allows its vision to pierce through much of the space dust that blocks the view of ordinary optical telescope/camera systems.
These images of the La Niña effect observed over the Tasman Sea is an ongoing photo project by Irenaeus Herok
“I use light as a material to work the medium of perception, basically the work really has no object because perception is the object. And there is no image because I am not interested in associative thought.”
Rainy Nights by Tiago Caetano
A bright neon stream of chaos rains down from Tiago’s stormcloud, in a pattern repeated throughout history, no matter who rules or what tragedies befall the land: the rain will continue to fall. The only difference between modern times and back then is now we can listen to invisible rain whenever we need it, instead of being at the whim of disorder.
