Anamorphic Illusions by Felice Varini

If you’re one of those pandas who read our magazine daily, you probably remember Anamorphic Medusa Inside a Factory by Truly Design or Anamorphic Typography by Joseph Egan we’ve talked about earlier. Well, it appears that these guys are not the only ones experimenting with this technique.

Swiss artist Felice Varini has been creating illusions of flat graphics superimposed on three dimensional spaces since 1979 using the same eye-deceiving technique called anamorphosis. The complete shapes can only be seen when viewed at certain angles, otherwise the viewer will only see some random broken pieces.

Over the course of 30+ years, Varini has created many great optical illusions, however the most remarkable work is probably “Cercle et suite d’éclats” where the artist took on the challenge of working at the scale of the village, superimposing perfect circles on the town of Vercorin in the Swiss Alps. You’ll find it at the end of the article.
