Using wallpaper designed by Florence Broadhurst, artist Emma Hack painted models to match, making them literally disappear into the wall. The detailed work matches the walls patterns to a tee, creating an effect that even the best photoshop jockey would be hard pressed to replicate.

The Dutch artist Desiree Palmen lives and works in Rotterdam, NL. Many of her pieces are based around the idea of camouflage - the act of being unseen, undetected. To create the site specific suits Palmen photographs a precise location. She then paints the image of the place onto a suit by hand. A person then wears the finished suit and poses in the original location - trying to blend into the space as much as possible. (Source)
