Anamorphosis 1991

  • 4.3
Stephen and Timothy Quay's interest in esoteric illusions finds its perfect realization in this fascinating animated lecture on the concept of ANAMORPHOSIS. This artistic technique, often used in the 16th and 17th centuries, utilizes a method of visual distortion with which paintings, when viewed from different angles, mischievously revealed hidden symbols.

Exquisite precision, pure cultural enrichment. It is a celebration of Visual Enigma.

Order out of seeming chaos.

Eh, kinda blah, hadn't seen these paintings.

A perfect short film. A intellectual arsenal to any artist or lover of art. Done in such a way to capture the imagination of neither.

Fascinating.
