Mosaics That Twist Perspective

read
From Photographer and Graphic Designer Victor Tretiak

Victor Tretiak turns photographs into colorful mosaics that distort the scale of the images, offering a delightful change of perspective. Each piece produced by the Thailand-based artist resembles the face of a Rubik’s Cube in which some of the panels have been reordered in the wrong rows.

Let's start with the 1700s, when 2/3 of the region was being used to grow food.

Weekly links: Surfrider celebrates 150th victory, photography heads undersea, and Russian nature art is nuts.

Shouts out to Jim Moriarty and Surfrider Foundation. In 2005, the coastal conservation group set a goal for 150 "coastal victories" by 2010.
