Every news channel, website or newspaper is full of COVID-19 related information. And the truth is, none of it brings up our hopes or is motivating. But, while the whole world is suffering from this pandemic, a design company in South Korea called D’strict has created an anamorphic illusion.
What is an anamorphic illusion?
An anamorphic illusion is simply the effect where when something is seen from a specific angle, in a specific way, it only then is seen properly. It is otherwise not proper and is distorted. That means that what we see as an anamorphic illusion, is actually distorted. Think of it basically as you are being fooled when you see an anamorphic illusion, and no matter how hard you try, you will keep seeing it only.
Now that you know what an anamorphic illusion is, what about the one in Korea?
A large screen has been installed in some places of South Korea. There is an amazingly realistic wave crashing on the walls of the screen. It looks like the wave can wash away the whole city any time soon. But, D’strict has used this anamorphic illusion method to make the wave on a large LED screen.
D’strict has merged art and today’s technology to create a breath-taking experience!
