Mind-Bending Geometric Art That Can Only Be Viewed at Certain Angles
French artist and photographer Georges Rousse is known for his ability to create mind-bending, optical illusion art. In his latest collection, Rousse created realistic designs that at the perfect angle become geometric designs, but at any other perspective look like disjointed painted shapes. The artwork challenges onlookers to understand how the architecture, colors and lines interact and fit together.
Rouse’s work is described on his website:
In his photographs, Georges Rousse compels us to read architecture as static, images as immobile, then gradually transforms our perception of Space and Reality. The final photographic image perturbs our visual habits and convictions by presenting three kinds of space: the real space, where he makes his installations; an imaginary utopian space, which the artist invents and then carefully builds at his chosen site; and a new space that is visible from only one spot when he clicks the camera shutter, and exists only in the photo.
