Relying solely on optical illusions, Vienna-based artist Peter Kogler transforms ordinary rooms into space-time warp universes. Kogler turns flat, white surfaces into dizzying 3-D patterns simply by drawing curved, contoured lines that make viewers feel as if they’re being sucked into a swirling vortex – or another dimension.
Some of the designs encompass entire hallways, allowing people to move through the patterns and experience the full effect. The multimedia installation of spatial illusions evokes claustrophobic feelings in some, often causing disorientation.
If you’re interested in seeing his work in person, it’s currently on display at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Croatia.
