The Horror Of Sleep Paralysis Hallucinations Revealed In 46 Dark Drawings

I’m A Little Bit Panicked That I May Find Myself In Sleep Paralysis Again

Sleep paralysis is a curious thing. As you might know, during an episode of sleep paralysis a person is unable to move or speak, all the while being totally aware of that. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also an eerie twist – while being paralyzed, one might also see hallucinations, which, when seen for the first couple of times might be intensely scary. And to make it just a little bit more fun, visual hallucinations are never pleasant, merely the level of terror felt might vary. Of course, there are a couple of theories why these things happen to usually otherwise healthy people, but nobody knows for sure. Continue reading »

Stories Hidden In Images: A Designer Has Created Book Covers Made Of Random Stock Photos

Alan Moore, the author of the comic V for Vendetta, noticed once that people tend to imagine their own lives as stories, and they browse them as in a movie – by rewinding to an appropriate moment.

The truth is that we are a narrative genre – we just love to listen and to tell stories. First, we listen to fairy tales read by parents and with time we start looking for new ones in books, comics and movies. We have an irresistible attraction to fictionalization – our minds create stories based on perceived images and thus, reveal our personalities and the power of imagination.

In PIXERS, we experience a boundless number of images and an equal amount of our clients’ stories every day. Sometimes, we get tired of such an overproduction and we try to exercise our imagination by assigning new unexpected meanings to the images that usually only flash in front of our eyes.

Below, you can see the effect of such an experiment: 10 book covers made of random stock photos by our graphic designer, and with fictional plots that I invented myself. Are these books new (imaginative) bestsellers?

Amazing Images Reveal How the Exclusion Zone Around Fukushima Has Been Abandoned to Become an Overgrown Wilderness

A stunning new photo project offers unprecedented insight into the wild and desolate exclusion zone surrounding the Fukushima nuclear power plant – where tonnes of contaminated soil lie untouched and overgrown forest is engulfing hundreds of abandoned vehicles and homes.

The 12.5-mile exclusion zone around the nuclear plant now resembles post-apocalyptic scenes from The Walking Dead after it was instantly abandoned following the 2011 nuclear disaster.

People deserted the area after warnings of dangerous levels of radioactivity, leaving cars, classrooms and libraries to be swallowed by the overgrown wilderness in stark scenes reminiscent of those seen in the show, in which entire towns have been left in stasis after zombies overran the earth.
