Felice Varini’s Installations are Playful With Perspective

You could say Paris based artist Felice Varini uses perspective in a way opposite to how we're typically accustomed to seeing it in art: he transforms three dimensions into two.  His large site specific installations are often simply geometric shapes in bright single colors.  From a very specific vantage point, however, the shape appears to be two dimensional and floating in the air.  Varini's installations nearly resemble a pattern merely printed on a photograph of the scene.  Look more closely though - you'll notice Varini carefully applied these shapes over wide areas of walls, floors, doors, and windows.  Step to the side and the shapes suddenly become violently skewed. Check out images of his installations from various viewpoints after the jump.
