Arcs d'Éllipses.. optical illusion!



  I had heard there was something amazing to see on High Street in Fremantle. No exaggeration! The optical illusion artwork created by Paris based Swiss artist Felice Varini is an incroyable sight! Instead of me trying to explain how this complicated piece was achieved, a short video and details here will be much clearer. I only wish the skies had been a bit bluer to compliment the yellow :) The above and below shot taken from the optimum viewing spot, the Round House, where you can look down and see the total effect. The artwork was created using temporary thin aluminum self-adhesive sheeting (seen in collage right bottom corner) therefore not in any way harming the canvas, in this case the heritage buildings that line High Street. Part of Fremantle's High Tide17 event. Pretty cool right! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. the last shot is looking back up to the Roundhouse. P.p.s. you really should look at the video :)

  1. Amazing...you do have the most interesting things in Perth! Did you use a fish-eye lens for the 2nd shot? I've got to visit Perth before I die, which means in the next couple of weeks, probably. :)

  3. Very clever. The first question - "How?" - is answered by the video. But that only raises the second question - "Why?" - I haven't answered that one yet! As someone who struggles to affix sticky tape to Christmas wrapping I can only gawp in wonder!

  12. That is a remarkable piece of art - it must have taken a lot of preparation to paint it.

  13. Fantastic work. I can't imagine anyone doing anything like that in the USA, especially because our cities are so extremely dirty and littered with trash all over the place (except in the trash cans) besides the hooligans would destroy it.

  16. What a find, Grace, that´s really a very clever piece of artwork! And so simple, too, with the nightshots. So sad it´s just temporary, though.

  17. Oh my gosh, that is amazing. It makes me think of the group of photos I saw at the Phoenix Art Museum that seem to hanging in random space but when viewed from one spot it all comes together. This is even better!
