Double exposure photography isn’t new, but we all just remembered how cool it looks thanks to the True Detective opening sequence. Artist Hiki Komori (a reference to the Japanese “Hikikomori” that are recluses who seek isolation and confinement) takes the practice of double exposing a photograph to a level that even True Detective might not have hit. Hiki Komori (aside from the pseudonym, we don’t know much about the artist) juxtaposes faces and bodies with mostly industrial landscapes. We could get into the emotional ramifications of the seemingly disparate parts of each of these photo collages, but we’ll leave that up to you. We like the works because they’re just plain cool.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
