Check out these sculptures by British artist james hopkins. It’s all based on your point of view– at the right perspective you see the full image. Really impressive.
James is known for slyly transforming familiar objects, converting
them into different items and nudging them towards a state that produces an unexpected
response from those who behold them. ‘Perspective Sculptures’ are a series of installations that use optical illusions to play with the viewer’s perceptions. As Hopkins is interested in changing the norms of how his audience sees objects, he explores this concept by introducing a series of distorted
musical instruments and optically created cartoon characters such as The Simpsons,
the cast of South Park and Tom and Jerry.(www.designboom.com)
From one perspective, the characters appear recognizable with all their parts aligned;
however, another viewpoint reveals their individual components.
