Midterm Illusion

With the special ladies – Sofia, Isa, & Oriana…

We sat down and started talking about the different approaches and elements we each thought about. These are the 3 things we came up with :

This is a work by René Magritte. The illusion is very simple and very powerful.  For the first idea we are thinking on recreating this with a mirror frame and a projector to project a live feed of the person’s back.

The second idea is to try and create a body of water inside one of the classrooms. The main idea is to use lighting and water to create the light-and-water patterns.

The third idea (my favorite) is to create a space inside one of the lockers. Making an illusion of an obscure deep space inside a relative small compartment sounds like a challenging exciting mission that I personally would really like to try.
