I found this entry about Felice Varini tonight and had to pass it along.
Varini is a Swiss artist who creates some truly astonishing 3D, large-scale optical illusions in public spaces. I wasn’t familiar with his work before, but after looking at a few photos of his installations, I’m definitely a fan. It’s absolutely BONKERS.
That he manages to fuse such wild creativity with the rigid mental discipline, mathematical expertise, and spacial awareness it must take to pull these things off is nothing short of amazing. So unbelievably cool.
