Nice one! By Loek Vugs – a designer and animator from the Netherlands.
Check out his website.

The Picture Plane
This animation was inspired by Scott McCloud’s ‘Picture Plane’ from the book ‘Understanding Comics’. The Picture Plane is a model in which you can see the transition between different visual styles. In this case from a realistic to a more iconic portrait.”

HEAD INSTRUCTOR is an anamorphic sculpture made of 144 hand-painted glass strips.

The piece is placed on a rotating platform through which four fragmented images assemble every 90° turn. The glass strips are stuck into a wooden base with laser cut slits.

All fragments of the images were painted separately on each strip with the same colors used for traditional stained glass windows. The rotating top part of the piece is 61*74*61 cm.
