Multi-Anamorphic Sculpture

Schönes Dings von Thomas Medicus, ein Glaswürfel mit eingebackenen, auseinandergeschnippselten, anamorphischen Illus. Das ganze besteht aus 216 von Hand bemalten lasercut Acrylglasstreifen, die, um Reflektionen zu vermindern, in Öl schwimmen (gleicher Brechungsindex wie das Acrylglas). (Danke Philipp!)

900-DSC_0339Through a plug system made out of 216 laser cut acrylic glass strips, a cubic framework, which contains layers pointing towards all three spatial dimensions, is created. On each side of the cube there is one anamorphic painting that can always only be seen from one point. Since every figure fills the exact same surface as its counterpart on the opposite side, the rear image is covered while looking at one figure. Before painting the fragments of the images separately on the strips with acrylic paint, the segmentation has been planned entirely. In order to prevent irritating reflections within the strips, the sculpture floats in silicone oil.
