ART21 and artist, Lucas Blalock, recently paired up to make this short little clip about the Blalock’s unusual Photoshop skills (some of which are implied in the equally interesting edit of the video itself.) With his work, Blalock aims to demonstrate the downfalls of Photoshop, primarily when the software is used to alter the captured reality beyond what is actually capable.

To do this, Blalock uses a large format analog camera to take a photograph, then brings it into Photoshop to turn his concept into reality. He says he’s inspired by the works of surrealist painter, René Magritte and Buster Keaton, the silent film star from the 1920’s.

Take a look at the quirky video, here:

    I could see the academic world become enthralled with this as a fad, doesn’t really ring any of my own bells in particular, but perhaps that’s just because I have only just seen it? At first I was sure there was no way this could work, but I must admit a couple of the results being “quite interesting”

      Some of the results definitely are interesting. I produced some stuff like this when I first discovered the clone tool. Its nice to see someone taking it farther, I’ve always been a fan of art that is in some way about revealing the process of art. Breaking down the fourth wall in theatre or cinema for instance.

      I similarly see the potential for this to be a flash in the pan fad in some circles, though I suspect a more interesting undercurrent will continue. It’ll be interesting to see. I know I’ll be thinking a bit differently the next time I double click that [PS].
