This art installation, known as Dazzle room, was created by Japanese artist Shigeki Matsuyama after he learned about a kind of camouflage used during the First World War.

Matsuyama‚Äôs installation features a strong contrast pattern made of black and white stripes and shapes, which is borrowed from dazzle camouflage‚ÄĒalso known as razzle dazzle‚ÄĒused mainly during the First World War. Instead of decorating the side of warships, though, here the eye-popping pattern covers a room entirely, including a lonely woman looking at her smartphone.

There‚Äôs probably a deep meaning somewhere‚ÄĒif you can see it.
