Project Brief: Inspired by Felice Varini’s work, this optical illusion was a pop-up installation designed to beautify the tunnel running below the train tracks on campus. We chose this particular location because of how uninspiring and unpleasant this tunnel is. Hundreds of students walk through the tunnel every day, and our design sought to enliven the space. In designing an optical illusion, we were hoping to make walking though the tunnel a more interesting and interactive visual experience. It took us two nights to finish the entire painting process.
