This Glass Cube Is Hiding A Secret Image… Once It Spins You’ll Be Transfixed.
Every once in awhile, we come across the work of an artist that's so interesting and unique, it simply must be shared as far and wide as possible. The work of Thomas Medicus is unlike anything we've seen before -- in fact, it's so unusual that we're not exactly sure how he even did it.
Titled Emergence Lab, Medicus' work is an anamorphic structure that contains six hand painted images, all resting inside a translucent cube. Inside the cube are 216 laser-cut strips that make up the painting, designed and constructed to perfectly align when viewed from each side of the cube. It's a tough piece to explain: You just have to see it for yourself.
Each image is contained within the same surface as it's counterpart on the opposite side of the cube.
The entire cube is filled with silicone oil in between the acrylic strips, making it look like it's solid glass.
It's hard to fathom just how Medicus pulled this off, but he did.
When viewed straight on, the images are extremely precise -- so much so that you could forget that inside this cube is just a jumble of perfectly structured acrylic and strips of color.
Here's how the two sides look next to one another,
