The Man Who Isn't There...

Via Frankie T.  I've seen some of these photos before, but never with any explanation.  The lead from the article accompanying the photos:
You might say that Liu Bolin likes to blend in.

But the Chinese artist does more than just wear camouflage pants and stand next to a bush. With the help of some assistants, Bolin paints himself, head to toe and unassumingly just stands there--in grocery stores, next to piles of coal, on staircases, you name it. And, unless you look really closely, you'll miss him entirely--which is pretty much the point.
My first thought on seeing these: it gives you a good idea what Harry Potter's cloak might do if such a thing could actually be made...
