‘The Secret Of the Great Pyramid’ by French artist JR – thousands of strips of paper pasted to the courtyard outsde the Louvre by 400 volunteers to create a massive ephemeral anamorphic illusion celebrating the 30th anniversary of the now iconic but once reviled Louvre Pyramid. To wit:

The sun dries the light glue and with every step, people tear pieces of the fragile paper. The process is all about participation of volunteers, visitors, and souvenir catchers. This project is also about presence and absence, about reality and memories, about impermanence.


Melon-twisting installations by artist Chris Engman composed of large scale digital photographs secured to the walls floors and ceilings of domestic interiors.

 As viewers ’step inside’ the image, the anamorphic effect is dispelled and the scene becomes fragmented and warped.

Which is disappointing, yet salutory and reflective of idealised perception in general.

*so alone*

Shallow consumerism, reality and illusion, the environmental cost of the modern world and so forth.
