Optical Illusion: Interesting Perspective Sculptures from James Hopkins
British artist James Hopkins 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.
The ‘perspective sculptures‘ featured in this post 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 audience see objects, he explores this concept by introducing a series of optically created cartoon characters such as ‘the simpsons’, the cast of ‘south park’ and ‘Tom and Jerry’.
From one perspective, the characters appear recognizable with all their parts aligned. However, another viewpoint reveals they are just a random jumble of unrelated objects. Quite interesting and remarkable work. See more work of James here.
