The newest member of the  Department of Astonishing Optical Illusions turns her own left hand into the stuff of both dreams and nightmares. Canberra-based artist Lisha Simpson uses her skills with body paint and a black background to transform her hand into an amazing array of surreal optical illusions that range from ghastly and ghoulish to utterly enchanting.

“The final illusion is created by a combination of the perfect lighting, solid black paint to create negative space, a black background and the right angle. Once I’ve captured the perfect photo, I then use a photo editing app that allows me to fade the black paint to blend in with my background.“

Even cooler still is watching Simpson’s creations in motion:
