NewImage

Twin brothers Ryan and Trevor Oakes’ Compounding Visions exhibit is currently on display at the National Museum of Mathematics until July 21st. via wnyc:

Some of the pieces in the show were made on spherically-curved sheets of paper in the form of realistic drawings and paintings. The concept originates from recognizing that human vision is spherical. Visitors are encouraged to test their own scope of vision with experiments placed as an exercise on optical consciousness.
