Anamorphosis Art – seeing things in a new way

Artist Julian Beever takes realistic and fun art to a whole new level with his chalk street drawings. His creations have graced the sidewalks and streets of England, France, Germany, USA, Australia and Belgium. The art must be viewed from a particular angle or it appears warped and bizarre, a technique called anamorphosis. This is the key to create works that appear three dimentional.

What does this have to do with writing, not much. I like to share things that make me smile and think.

Here is my personal favorite:

  1. I have been a fan of his work for some time now.

    Oh, and if you don’t mind, I think this has a LOT to do with writing. Point of view changes everything. Read Capote’s “In Cold Blood” for some fantasic “other” views of some rather horrible occurances.

    Much like the way Mr. Beever’s art only makes sense from one point of view, some kinds of writing require you to set up the POV for the reader.

    • I’m glad you chimed in, I was writing under the influence and didn’t have the patience to make a solid writing connection. Under the influence of children I should add… Thanks for the recommendation!
