Watch a Man Disappear Before Your Eyes

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Chinese artist Liu Bolin does a wonderful job of hiding himself in all kinds of locations, but this video reveals exactly how he does it.

A time-lapse taken at this year's TED conference, it shows Bolin on stage, being painted in-situ. The artist explains:

"For the talk, I stood up on stage with my outfit pre-painted and then one of my assistants worked with the camera and stood back to instruct the other painter on what to do, where to paint, what colours to use, until from the camera I appear invisible."

You can see more of his work — and less of him! — right here. [TED via Verge]
