Artist Thomas Deininger is well known to create mind bending optical illusions. The Rhode Island-based artist has expertise in creating large-scale objects from common objects including recycling material. It is said that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” and this is completely true for landscapes created by Thomas Deininger as he gives a whole new meaning to those objects.
Deininger is a master when it comes to creating fabulous two- and three-dimensional portraits. In what appears to be a flat creation, the portrait has many layers of found objects that comprise the sizable structure.
A video is now going viral on social media sites, which has one artwork by Thomas Deininger. The video depicts how the video was created, by assembling hundreds of everyday items including old photographs, broken dolls and fishing nets (mostly discarded things) to create a lively and vivacious portrait and that too without using any color or brush.
Watch the video here:
The video has received over 8 million views, and for many it was nothing short of fascination. What they considered to be a simple portrait was a ‘two-dimensional’ assemblage.

I don’t know if I’m more terrified by the amount of dolls or impressed by the piece.
I think impressed wins.
