In this work " Future Perfect", artist Brendan Fernandes implements the technique of blurred lines to emphasize motion. The blurring effect is used in the light coming from the storage containers as well as in the outlines of the figures in the foreground. As a result, the image seems to be one frame in the midst of a strange phenomenon that only the viewer is experiencing rationally (as the figures in the foreground are blurry themselves and the one man isn't even looking). In this way Fernandes not only shows motion but provides the audience with a specific viewpoint.
