Far from this setting in which I now find myself, 2017, wood, metal, and acrylic paint. approx. 35 x 16 x 15 feet. Installation at the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston, MA.
This sculpture is an optical illusion called an Ames Room. An Ames Room is a three-walled trapezoidal room built with a false perspective so it appears square and regular from one viewpoint while people inside the room seem to be different sizes depending on where they stand.
Peephole for viewing or photographing the optical illusion.
Park visitors photographing themselves in the sculpture.
Photographs taken through the peephole.
