Pictures "simple in concept, complex in execution" by South Korean artist Myoung Ho Lee. The pictures at the link are just on the verge of "too small to see," but the idea is fascinating. I also liked Tree #2, a lot, but found the lit night shots somewhat less convincing. Take a look for yourself.
(Thanks to Dave Reichert)
UPDATE: There's a larger collection of much larger images, as well as a very accessible plain-talk interview with the photographer, at the Morning News. Thanks again to Dave, who found this link as well.

Featured Comment by Jeff Glass: "I enjoyed these photographs...a very enjoyable and provocative game, as art should be. But I really wish you, Mike, as an excellent writer, would address some of the art-speak gibberish that unfortunately accompanies the photos. E.g.,: 'The challenge of "Photography-Act" is deep. Because "Photography-Act" is not a real subject but a decontextualized and isolated variant from the subject, and is a real subject and nonsubject simultaneously.' Um...OK. That, to me, is a real paragraph and a non-paragraph simultaneously. Perhaps you understand this kind of 'language' (which reads like something out of Google translator). If so, please help me out?"
Mike replies: Sure, Jeff. Just see Stephen Colbert's critique of Eric Cantor. It starts at about 2:45 at the link. I think it should explain everything.
