For those who thought the globular landscape and cityscape photography trick was impressive, get a load of the City Series by James McNabb of McNabb & Co., a design studio based in Pennsylvania. More than a perspective-shifting image, this exhibit revolves around physical sculptures that are based on the aesthetic of typical skylines.

Sculpted with a bandsaw, the City Series by James McNabb was originally meant to be individual wooden pieces that resembled tools or other strangely familiar objects. But the more McNabb made, the more the sculptures began to look like a miniature urban setting. From spheres and rings to glacier-like tables and basic blocks, the 'cities' take on many forms.
