August 11, 2012 - Cartoon from Space?

Imagine you are hiking along, headed up a hill and
when you look up you see a gigantic tissue floating
to the ground.



You close your eyes and shake your head, but when you
open them again it is still there, floating . . .



Wait, this can't be real. It certainly doesn't look real.
It looks like a drawing. How can a drawing be sitting
at top of the hill?

Quote:
As you approach, you realize it is made of metal.
It's a sculpture, made of welded and painted steel that
looks like a two dimensional cartoon drawing of a three
dimensional piece of paper ... that is three dimensional
if you get close, but looks two dimensional if you stay
at the bottom of the hill...


Well, wasn't that a nice little mind trip?

Thanks to ZenGum for sharing this post from NPR's Krulwich Wonders blog.

Images and info taken from The Art of the Illusion which
Quote:
Presents over two hundred optical illusions that defy reality, featuring works by M.C. Escher, as well as pieces from Octavio Ocampo, Rob Gonsalves, and Andre Martins de Barros.

Just FTR - this is in New Zealand.
Also known as that little place close to Australia where Lord of the Rings was filmed.
