"Reflections" is the ongoing personal experiment of couple Tobias van Schneider and Verena Michelitsch. They explore the ephemeralities of the shapes found in reflections, photographed from different perspectives. The final result is a mixture of digital illustration and photography. They utilize different materials like paper, plastic and plexiglass in stacked arrangements to create these crystal-like illusions, shot from various angles. The result is quite beautiful, a rumination on the meaning of "reflective." You can even download the images as iPhone backgrounds from their Behance site.

In this interview, Joanne Nam delves into her upbringing in the forests of Korea, relating the strange impressions her life has left on her that continue to inspire her work. "I am not going to paint an old man dragging a dead dog," she says--a recurring memory of hers--"However, I would definitely paint a girl feeling the strangely beautiful disturbance." Nam lives and works in Los Angeles.
