Have you ever been privy to a real-life portal? Yeah, we haven’t either, but Scott Hazard’s photographs almost had us convinced that they definitely exist. Then, we discovered his technique. The Raleigh-based artist strategically tears and layers his photographs, creating eerie illusions of nonexistent clouds, smoke, and portals along the way. Cool idea, eh? Hazard does the same with his “Text Constructs,” as words on paper are torn and rearranged and form new, fascinating pieces of art. Check out a selection of Hazard’s work after the jump, and head to his website for more.
