YouTube illusionist Brusspup, who created the Crazy Chair Illusion we recently spotted, is back with another inimitable video. This one isn't so much an illusion, per se, as it is a testament to the power of persistence. And a long attention span. And a LOT of free time.
Using Photoshop to break a digital photo down to a mere five colors, Brusspup assigned a shade of plastic pushpin to each color, and then got to work. Spending over one hundred hours spread out over a month, he assembled a mind-blowing 15,000 pins — each one functioning as a 'pixel' in the larger image — and caught the whole process on time-lapse video.
Enough of our yakking. A picture is worth a thousand words, or, in this case, 15,000 pushpins. Enjoy!
