Optical Illusion Dynamic Sculptures titled "Focus". Font view and 360 degree animated view can be seen at http://vimeo.com/67965345

This is a prototype of a large scale scupture. Dimension Varies. If you are interested in a comission of this sculpture, please send me an email.


My optical sculptures explore the fundamental relation between motion and static. It is also a form of transformation. As the light changes during the day, the sculpture display different illusions. Flipped visions occur where the convex shaped cube seems concave while the concave shaped cube seems convex. Similarly, under certain light, the convex and concave shapes seem to completely disappear---the sculpture looks like a flat wall. It creates an optical illusion where changes in perspective seem to shift the shape of the object as pedestrians walk around it, thus creating the sensation that the sculpture is actually moving. This dynamic phenomenon encourages the viewers to interact with the artwork.
