Perspective Matters

"Magic Angle Sculpture": John V. Muntean creates intricate carvings of wood which, at first glance, can be difficult to discern or understand, but when a light is applied, the shadows they cast create several different images based on their orientation. [more inside]

VIEW, DEDUCE AND IMAGINE. CREATE YOUR OWN TRUTH.

Wonderful Ambiguity. (some later images NSFW; or are they? [but seriously, some possibly even more nsfw than this]) "Sculptors" "today", what with their "plank piece I & II", "planking" back when it was "cool", before it was hip; there are at least 47 pages of wonderful, mercifully, none relating to "planking".

Trevor and Ryan Oakes' perspective easel

Twin brothers Trevor and Ryan Oakes have a new technique for drawing perspective. Unlike the camera obscura and camera lucida (allegedly) employed by Renaissance masters, their method uses an easel with a curved steel frame which splits the artist's view into a grid and a skullcap to lock his head into place. By employing an optical trick similar to magic-eye stereoscopy, the artist can superimpose what he sees onto a thin strip of his paper. The result? Richly detailed line drawings on concave surfaces. Their website. (Look for Trevor's pipe cleaner weavings and the see-through concave cardboard wall). More, more and more.
