Anamorphic Illusions by Felice Varini
If you’re one of those pandas who read our magazine daily, you probably remember the cool artwork called 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 eye trick technique.
Swiss artist Felice Varini has been creating anamorphic illusions of flat graphics superimposed on three dimensional spaces since 1979 using the same eye-deceiving technique called anamorphosis. The complete illusion artwork 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 art installation 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 this unique artwork at the end of the article.
