Art of Illusion

“The Art of Illusion: Some New Perspectives” is a look at the way artists working in two dimensions try to fool us into thinking we are seeing in three dimensions. The talk covers traditional perspective drawing, “trompe l'oeil,” and a brief survey of how contemporary artists are creating startling new illusions on buildings, sidewalks, and other nontraditional surfaces.
