Illusory Space
Designed By:Chui-Ying Chou
Commissioned by:Chui-Ying Chou
Country by:Taiwan, Province of China

Visual illusions are created when 2D graphics merge with 3D structures. Here, black and white 2D vinyl strips extend into 3D space via black and white wood structures. This creates a Moire effect. As the viewer perceives the sculpture and approaches it from different angles, patterns change. Lines intersect in differing manners leaving the viewer wondering. What is creating these patterns? Why are they changing? The viewer is involved and puzzled. Installed at the art museum, the sculpture with its wood structure return merges with the existing curved ceiling. Ceiling and sculpture appear as one.
