Platforms by Aakash Nihalani

Anamorphosis, Animation 11 March 2014 0 Comments

Today’s illusion is called Platforms.  It is an art installation created by Aakash Nihalani using tape on the wall and ground for Parrish Art Museum in Long Island, New York.  This anamorphic creation gives the impression that four square platforms are floating in space.  The man seen in the picture appears to attempting to jump from the first platform to the second one.  How successful do you think he will be?

Jumping from the first platform to the second platform would prove to be extremely difficult.  The animation below helps to show how this anamorphic work looks from an alternate angle.

Regarding his art, Nihalani notes:

People need to understand that how it is isn’t how it has to be.  My work is created in reaction to what we readily encounter in our lives, sidewalks and doorways, buildings and bricks.  I’m just connecting the dots differently to make my own picture.  Others need to see that they can create too, connecting their own dots, in their own places.
