Holding of the exhibit “Evolving Impossible Objects – The Mystifying World Born of Illusion”

Oct. 19, 2015

Gallery ZERO in the Ikuta Library located on Meiji University’s Ikuta Campus (in Tama Ward, Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan) is going to hold an exhibit titled “Evolving Impossible Objects – The Mystifying World Born of Illusion” until October 29 (Thurs.).

The exhibit introduces the weird world spawned by optical illusions. It centers around illusory objects, such as anomalous objects that appear to realize trompe d’oeil paintings, objects that appear to create impossible motion (such as a ball rolling up a slope), and ambiguous objects whose shapes change when reflected in a mirror. The exhibit items number 20 objects, two videos, and 10 tapestries.
