I got a book from the library called: ‘Masters of Deception’ I find it a fascinating subject in general. From early childhood I remember the work from people like M.C. Esher and Jos de Mey whose prints were in everybody’s house it seemed.
Esher’s work especially would lend itself to a PPP, the strong transformational images like the fishes & ducks print comes to mind. Then there are some artists who do the most incredible things work with type, look at Scott Kim‘s work and be amazed!
But Shigeo Fukuda’s shadow sculptures are the most incredible to me, have a look at this video: I can’t even imagine the challenges he would encounter when working on a piece like this, built out of clamps! He’d have had to be in the dark a lot of the time, to check placement of each clamp, seen from a single light source. Illusions in Art is a much bigger subject than I realised, I’ll get into it a bit more at some future date!
