Plane Anamorphic Art

Normally, drawings and photographs are seen by standing in front of them and seeing them ‘face on’. If the same photograph is seen ‘edge on’, the image appears distorted. Such distortion is called ‘Plane Anamorphism’.  In this exhibit, picture of a familiar object appears distorted when seen face on. The distortion, however, disappears when seen from the position marked next to the board. Advertisement boards that appear on highways and tall buildings are prepared such that passers-by see undistorted pictures and text from their angle of viewing.
