“Misunderstanding Focus” is a portrait series executed by the artistic collective known as Nerhol. The clever Japanese duo that makes up this brainstorm of creativity are Yoshihisa Tanaka and Ryuta Iida. Their work, when looked at carefully, is an elaborate testament of our always aging, constantly moving, ever changing bodies.
In this series, they take an experimental approach to art in which portraits are taken of their subjects during a three minute time-lapse. The hyperbolic images taken during this time were then compiled into intricate over imposed patterns to form a final portrait. Turns out that thanks to our pulsating hearts, the task of holding completely still is imposible for us mere mortals.
