Now you see it, now you don’t. The Key principle of anamorphosis is a distorted perspective  that is only visible as intended from a unique point of view.

This technique date to early renaissance in the 15th century, you can find early examples of it on the ceilings of churches in Rome by artist like Andrea Pozzo. However the first known example of perspective anamorphosis is Leonardo’s Eye.

This post showcase the best of Felice Varini a Swiss artist nominated for the 2000/2001 Marcel Duchamp Price. He is well known for his edgy geometric anamorphic perspectives installations.Which I find gorgeous and really contemporary. It is amazing the way he mixes simple geometrics with more complex modern structures or even more interesting when it contrasts with more tradicional interiors and landscapes like the first example of this list that was done in Versailles.
