Emergence Lab, a hand painted anamorphic sculpture

Watch more with these video collections:

Observe all six sides of this hand painted anamorphic sculpture by Thomas Medicus. Titled Emergence Lab, the cube references the process “whereby larger entities, patterns, and regularities arise through interactions among smaller or simpler entities that themselves do not exhibit such properties.” He writes:

Through a plug system made out of 216 laser cut acrylic glass strips, a translucent cubic framework, which contains layers pointing towards all three spatial dimensions, is created.

On each side of the cube there is one anamorphic painting that can always only be seen from one point. Since every figure fills the exact same surface as its counterpart on the opposite side, the rear image is covered while looking at one figure.
