ILLUSION AND REALITY: REAL SOLIDS AND VIRTUAL SOLIDS
This is a side effect of the method of Orthogonal Intersections that I find particularly exciting. I have always loved drawings that evoke three-dimensional figures. Drawings creating the illusion of an “absurd solid” have always attracted me.
The drawing of a cube in perspective creates the illusion of a three-dimensional cube. If I transfer this or that drawing of another solid onto the sides of a “real” cube and apply the orthogonal intersection method, the result is a sculpture that is like no other known geometrical solid but which, when observed from two perpendicular directions LOOKS JUST LIKE A CUBE, A PYRAMID OR ANOTHER KNOWN OR ABSURD SOLID. This means that three observers in three different points would see three different solids.
