Now wait just two seconds... Impossible art. Answered

Some quite unbelievable art by artist Li Wei

Chinese artist Li Wei creates art that proves to be impossible. How does he do it, you ask? Performance art and photography is what creates these dangerous illusions. He also uses props such as metal wires, mirrors, scaffolding and acrobatics to help him with the effect.

This art is a series of self-portraits that he has made that uses mirrors to reflect his image. Some of his photos sell for around $8,000. As for what people around him think, he told Daily Mail, "The first reaction is astonishment. Some people think they are full of sense of humour. They are curious about how I did this. Sometimes I am in real danger - I have to hang myself high with steel wires and people do get a little worried for me - but I am fine."

Ugh I really don't like their music but the reason I connected them was due to general emo-age here that like them... *Emo-age - similar in usage to Emo-ing though emo-ing can also be used to refer to emo spotting, similar to birding which is not anything to do with dogging, though some emos have been known to practice both of these things...
