This unique metal design uses a single light source and a little spin to produce a rather dramatic effect. Brusspup got the idea for this video when he was walking through Santa Monica and saw a similar effect on a spinner in a storefront. He bought it, of course, and the end result is what you see below.
This animation of an impossible ribbon was created by Erwin Bonsma. Depending on how you look at it, this ribbon can be perceived as rotating in two different ways. He credits the original idea to M.C. Escher’s print titled “Cube with Magic Ribbons” which happens to be the first drawing by Escher to feature a truly impossible object.
Truly Design was asked to create this anamorphic installation for Burning Giraffe Art Gallery in Turin, Italy. Describing this project, they indicated that:
“We chose the minotaur because of its double human and animal nature, the latter being that of a bull, symbol of our hometown Torino. The minotaur lives secluded in its labyrinth, as do we within city walls. However, animal instinct borne within its mind spurs it towards freedom, aspect represented by the minotaur’s dynamic pose, ready to pounce or dash.“
This painting by Rob Gonsalves, completed in October 2014, features a dramatic transformation. Looking at the painting from the bottom, a man is standing in a wooded area by a campfire, but as he looks up into the clear night sky, the trees morph into skyscrapers.
