When you take a walk in the woods, you usually ready yourself for stumbling upon mud, bugs, rash-causing leaves and at worst snakes. Imagine shining your flashlight in the middle of the night of a camping excursion and finding this:

Scary, right? Don’t worry, the terrifying Silent Hill-esque faces you see spawning out of bamboo trees are simply the amazing but unnerving work of Japanese university Keita Motooka (@motonini0527).
