This video of hungarian brothers (Barnabas & Sebestyen) is about balance. Originally was made as a new year salutatory, but this would be clear at the and of the video. We could see bare tests, that could be frequently encountered on the internet, but the visual experience, the formal solutions, the symbols, the music of Bach from the music box lift up the beauty of physics for an artistic level.

Although these pictures look like ordinary photographs of fruits and mundane objects, don‘t be fooled – they are oil paintings on canvas made by young artist Ruddy Taveras from the Dominican Republic. Taveras, who is 29 years old, joined the National School of Fine Arts in Santo Domingo ten years ago. In 2008, he decided to devote himself to hyperrealism with the aim to capture reality more accurately and objectively than a photograph. Taveras has already produced many still-lifes and has participated in numerous local and national paiting competitions.

In this simple experiment, you can make it seem as though the arrows on a piece of paper move in the opposite direction. This is all due to refraction – as light passes through the glass, its speed changes and it refracts, slightly changing directions. The light eventually meets at a focal point outside of the glass and changes directions, resulting in a flipped image.
