Yesterday, I showed you Liu Bolin’s analogue take on invisibility. Today, I’ve got more for you: say hello to Fred Lebain…if you can see him.
Fred’s technique is similar to Liu’s, but instead of painting himself, he uses large photographs. He goes to various spots in NYC, takes a photo, then returns a few days later with a poster-sized print of the photo. When he holds it up in front of him, he nearly vanishes into his surroundings, save for some giveaway feet and shadows.
