Perspective is everything for Thomas Medicus: The Austrian artist created his latest work by strategically hand-painting 160 glass strips, then placing them in a very particular grid formation. From most angles it looks like a total mishmash, but four distinct images are hiding in the fray.
"Emulsifier" is a captivating anamorphic sculpture created by Thomas Medicus. The Innsbrook-based artist hand painted 160 strips of glass and arranged them on a rotating base. As the sculpture turns, the painted rods align to reveal one of four transient motifs.
For French artist George Rousse, color is clearly important, but space, depth and perspective are everything.
Anamorphic illustrations that reveal themselves in the presence of a cylindrical mirror, go back to the 1500s. Jonty Hurwitz takes a similar idea but plays it out in sculpture form, creating distorted objects that reveal a clear image only in front of that shiny cylinder.
An eye-popping optical illusion created by Parisian artist François Abelanet is on display outside Paris City Hall. This work of art looks like a giant grass sphere, but it's actually flat.
