Infrared paintings that can only be seen through a digital camera

Two Toronto-based artists have come up with a new way to express art on canvas. Their new series of paintings called Take a Picture might look like a series of blank canvases to the naked eye, but when you pull out your camera and look at the canvases through its screen, you’ll find out that they aren’t so blank after all. Trickey? Or Technology? Well, the artists explained how their paintings worked. Beneath the canvases are a wires and circuits that emit infrared lights that are just outside the range of the human eye. While the infrared lights are invisible to us humans, digital cameras (even those found on your phone) will be able to pick them up. Watch a video of how it works after the break. Do you think this form of art will catch on all over the world?
