The Unexpected Dinner

Crawl in from the back and stick your head through the hole above.Through the cleverly placed mirrors that reflect the background, an illusion of empty space is created that hides where the rest of your body should be! It’s headless fun!

Giant Chair

Position your camera lens behind the ‘peephole’ and observe how two wrongs become right – as the separated pieces of a chair magically align. With photo subjects, the effect of this illusion gets only better! It’s a fun way to learn how our visual system relies on shortcuts and can gloss over details in favour of the big picture!
