The world in Infrared by Italian photographer

Humans tend to believe in what they are able to conceive, to see, to hear. Though truth is wider than what our eyes are able to focus on. this is why
Italian photographer Paolo Pettigiani  chose to curate the world around him in infrared photography: to make the invisible evident. With his recent installation #InfraScapes , Paolo aims to show something that is broadly recognizable to the human eye, under a new and unexpected point of view.

 The intalian photographer spent three years in Arts and Design courses at Politecnico in Turin, specializing in how to use colour to distort reality. Majority of his works are shot  with a Nikon D750, converting Full-Spectrum, to explore the light’s spectrum emanated by plants. A spark that lies just beyond the beam visible to the naked eyes.

Reuben Wu imagines planetary exploration with a series of exposed photos

Lux Noctis is an award-winning series of photographs depicting landscapes within the framework of traditional landscape photography but influenced by ideas of planetary exploration, 19th century sublime romantic painting, and science fiction.

We are overwhelmed everyday by beautiful images of the familiar. I imagine these scenes transformed into undiscovered landscapes which renew our perceptions of our world.

I wanted a recurring subject in my photos and with so many photographers visiting the country, I figured that I needed to do something to set me apart!” he said. “I was watching the LOTR for the 5th time when I figured New Zealand is famous for 2 things: its landscapes and the LOTR + Hobbit Trilogies. So why not combine the two by having Gandalf in the landscapes?

At first, he tried self-portraits: “I tried the camera on a tripod with a timer shot, didn’t work for me,” Suhas said. “So, I started asking the people I met along the way if they wanted to put on the outfit.” Surprisingly, people agreed, and Suhas created an amazing small-person-big-landscape photo tour of New Zealand.

Jason Battersby’s Audi E-Bike design re-envisions the motorbike

7ca7d946240543-584d30f1847b5

( Jason /ht ) : twitter

Exterior designer jason Battersby adds a little twist to the motorized bike. The conceptual design  Audi-E is a n adjusted type of the electronic bike; with lighter materials and a rechargeable battery.

Both the wheels are lighter than a single conventional bike wheel , usually made from synthetic rubber and steel cables. The Audi-E bike wheel are to be made from carbon-fibre ( a less weighty material with much tensile strength to go with ) . The structure is rared streamed-lined to reduced air resistances and can be self charging.

The seat ramp holds the battery which charges by the ”  pedaling action ” and can be interchanged in the place it gets damaged.

742f2f46240543-584d30f184d65

the ramp  and frame casket are strong enough carry much higher tonnes of weight than conventional bike ; it can hold the rider , battery and the gear chain and  yet light enough to be carried as it will be made from the same material as the wheels ( Carbon fibre ).

Jason batersby is currently working as an exterior designer for Audi Konzept Design Munich.
