Figure-Ground Illusion Scupltures

Ambiguous 1 April 2013 0 Comments

In the early 20th century, psychologist Edgar Rubin developed the figure-ground vase (also known as Rubin’s vase).  This ambiguous figure can be interpreted as either a vase or two faces looking at each other.   Metal Portraits, a company based in Suwanee, Georgia, has taken the figure-ground vase concept to an entirely new level by creating metal sculptures that are the exact same size as your face.  They can be made from solid brass, stainless steel or aluminum.
