Michael Cheshire – ” Cubic Confusion”
Author description: The illusion is a two dimensional work made from wood veneers on a solid background. The impression of depth is caused by the choice of three colours of wood arranged in a hexagon to look like a 3D cube .With many hexagons arranged to overlap and of differing sizes the 3D effect becomes magnified. By adding the larger outer hexagons, makes another illusory cube which encloses and balances the whole design. The gaps between also help to give the structure a 3D effect overall. Even when shown that it is flat, we are compelled to see it as 3D.
