Decades after his death in 1989, painter Salvador Dalí is continuing to make art, or at the very least, something surreal. Last month, a Spanish judge ordered the artist’s body to be exhumed for a paternity suit filed by a television psychic. The fortune teller, Pilar Abel, claims she is Dalí’s daughter and has been…

New York City Looks Like a Fake Movie Set in This Trippy Video

New York City basically already looks like a living, breathing movie set in real life but this surreal video transforms the city completely by turning the buildings into fake facades that don’t actually house anything. Claire & Max gave the busy streets of New York an eerie sense of calm in the video by stripping away…

Surreal Video Transforms the City of Paris into an Empty Movie Set

When you walk around Paris in real life, you can’t help but pretend you’re inside a movie. It’s the architecture, it’s the energy, it’s the people, it’s the city of light and you can’t help but romanticize your experiences there. This clever video of Paris, Apparences from Claire & Max, uses that dreamy quality of the…

Watch The Wonderfully Odd Trailer For Post-Apocalyptic Romance Crumbs Watch The Wonderfully Odd Trailer For Post-Apocalyptic Romance Crumbs

Here's hoping Crumbs, a scifi romance shot in an Ethiopian ghost town by Spanish writer-director Miguel Llanso, gets wider exposure after its Rotterdam Film Festival debut last week. Check out the trailer; there's a UFO, a haunted bowling alley, a crazy Santa Claus, and space junk. For starters.

Seeing a bunch of random scenes in slow motion is surreal (NSFW)

If you ever wondered what hitting an egg with a golf club or throwing pork belly into a pan or shooting an arrow through a light bulb or cutting a woman's hair all looked like in slow motion, you don't have to wonder anymore, this video shows you and a lot of other awesome random things in slow motion.

These Photos Are More Terrifying Than Most Horror Movies These Photos Are More Terrifying Than Most Horror Movies

Taxidermy is already a bit unnerving, but how do you make it even stranger? Photograph people in grotesque costumes holding pieces of taxidermy, and stage it like something from your most surreal nightmare.

Two Men Become Robots, Cats, and Each Other In This "Face Hacking" Vid Two Men Become Robots, Cats, and Each Other In This "Face Hacking" Vid

Remember when the apex of what computers could do to morph faces was represented in Michael Jackson's "Black or White" music video? Yeah, things have changed, and with jaw-dropping results.

I can't believe this underwater film was made without special effects

This underwater video is impossibly surreal but the makers of the video, Francisco and Armando del Rosario and Armiche Ramos, say that no computer special effects were used in the video, just some camera tricks to make it look like the ocean world can be sideways and water can be walked upside down on.

Someone please turn this cool isometric animation into a weirdass game

Inspired by modern architecture, isometric video games and sci-fi literature, this beautiful animation from artist Fabrice Le Nezet follows some tiny people in an epic journey.

The magic of Iceland in one image The magic of Iceland in one image

It looks like someone found Thor's hammer—Mjölnir—and is trying to open portal from the world of the ice giants to Asgard. Or maybe it's just George X. Lin "having a bit of fun with steel wool" in a Icelandic ice cave.

The surreal, disturbing and sometimes erotic worlds of Rachel Baran The surreal, disturbing and sometimes erotic worlds of Rachel Baran

I love the surreal worlds of Rachel Baran, a self-taught, 20-year-old photographer who creates beautiful images—sometimes disturbing, sometimes erotic, always hypnotizing. This is Rachel in her own words, as she told me in an email:

I can't figure out which way the girl in these photographs is standing I can't figure out which way the girl in these photographs is standing

So her hair makes it look like she's turned away from the camera but her clothes are set up to make it look like she's facing the camera. What way is she really facing? Honestly, I can't tell. Malin Bergman loves to play little games with her Instagram pictures to make you question and wonder what's really happening…

Why do Russians pour asphalt over snowed roads instead of plowing them? Why do Russians pour asphalt over snowed roads instead of plowing them?

When I saw the headline "Snow has fallen? Time to lay asphalt!" in English Russia today I though it some translation problem. But it was literal. It may appear that Russians make new roads on top of snowed roads instead of cleaning them. Just look at the crazy pictures.

Nothing but the desert lives in these surreal abandoned homes Nothing but the desert lives in these surreal abandoned homes

Not only is Namibia a magnificent place, but it's also pretty pretty surreal. Check out the houses in the village of Kolmanskop, abandoned by old German diamond miners and taken by the desert in a hundred years.

Animated portraits of cyborgs are whimsical nightmare fuel Animated portraits of cyborgs are whimsical nightmare fuel

Milos "Sholim" Rajkovic's animated collages are unnerving to look at, but also strangely mesmerizing. He creates surreal portraits that transform mundane photographs into bizarre mechanisms from a Terry Gilliam-esque nightmare.

Famous Surrealist Art Amazingly Reimagined with Super Mario Bros Famous Surrealist Art Amazingly Reimagined with Super Mario Bros

René Magritte's art is famous for tickling your brain, making you question and helping you dissolve the line of what's real and what matters. You can recognize Magritte's work and influence anywhere but can you imagine it as Super Mario Bros? The artist Racoonda has re-created paintings from Magritte by putting them…

Saturday Webcomic: Ant Comic explores the trippy horrors of an insect war Saturday Webcomic: Ant Comic explores the trippy horrors of an insect war

In a network of tunnels beneath a great plain, there exists a race of ants nothing like the ants that exist in our world. They live in service to their nightmarish queen, but their day-to-day is filled with an ennui almost as terrifying as the monstrous spiders and centipedes they face. When one of their number is…

Google Earth Images Actually Make for Great Surrealist Art Google Earth Images Actually Make for Great Surrealist Art

Who knew Google was hiding an artistic touch in Google Earth? Clement Valla, an artist, fiddled with Google Earth and found some amazingly surrealist images. Turns out, when you zoom in at just the right angle, bridges droop dramatically, 2D roads look pasted on in a 3D world and the entire world looks like it's…
