Infrared paintings visible only with a digital camera

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2011

Two Toronto-based artists have come up with a new art form. It’s a new way to view art on canvas. Their new series is called Take a Picture, and while they might look like blank canvases, when you pull out your camera and look through its screen, you’ll see the actual art.

Behind the canvases there are wires and circuits that emit infrared light. This light is just outside the range of what the human eye can see. Digital cameras can see them just fine though. I don’t know if it’s art, but it is pretty cool.
