A Printed Illusion for sale on Amazon.com
The concept for this piece was to use perspective to re-construct 2 dimensional photographs into a 3 dimensional constructed space within the frame of a photograph. This Project had been a giant experiment in using perspective to trick the mind into seeing what’s not really there. To create this, I had to cut up each element of my living room, by taking photographs, then cutting each element out in Adobe Photoshop. The hidden parts of the section’s were then filled in and printed out. Construction of the scene was on an artificial stage I built, where I spent weeks framing the shot, arranging the pieces into position, and the re-photographing the images that didn’t work or line up. The project evolved as I added new pieces, and altering existing ones, until the 2D arranged photos gave the illusion of real depth. My original inspiration for this project, started by thinking about a popup book, and how it used a 2 dimensional print, and arrange it in a 3 dimensional space.
