The Illusionist

The brief was to design a 10 hour learning experience that questions how we perceive the world around us. We designed a project that involved the students creating their own ambiguous images, optical illusions, that forced the brain to make decisions. We needed to provide opportunities for young people to perceive depths and geometric shapes, using mathematical skills to process and recreate their own incredible 3D space.

An upside down washing line and optical art designs. From undies to shirts the students showed that being a bit wacky with your outlook can turn things on their head. It seemed like the hottest day of the year but we promised the students the smoke machine!
