An interesting use of infrared light in art encourages viewers to take photos of the work in order for it to appear.

Take A Picture is a conceptual work from Toronto-based artists Brad Blucher and Kyle Clements. The art is designed to appear as a completely blank canvas; embedded beneath is a series of wires and lighting that project images at a wavelength detectable only by digital camera. Visitors to the exhibition view the work by snapping a photo, shifting an act often discouraged by museums and galleries into a part of the piece itself.
