These Monochromatic Optical Illusions by Peter Kogler Will Surely Make You Dizzy

These artworks will induce vertigo!

For decades, world-renowned Austrian artist Peter Kogler has successfully transformed typical-looking galleries and museums into warp portals where hallucination and reality seem to converge. Using illusory, monochromatic patterns of distorted lines and pipes and similarly warped sculptures, he expertly transports his audiences to a different dimension where their depth perception is put to the test. The seemingly boundless patterns of alternating convex and concave offer a three-dimensional view of a world that appears to move and shift with every step.

First gaining international attention in the 1980s, the Vienna-based artist is a pioneer of computer-generated art. His works, which focus on architecture, cinema, minimalism and pop art, have been displayed in various galleries, museums, and exhibitions, all of which never fail to captivate.

Kogler’s motifs are drawn from the corporal and allegorical realms and then blended into a mixture of unique designs, as can be seen in the patterns that he employs, examples of which include pipes, ants, brain convolutions, and honeycombs.

Art Student Trolls Professor with Hidden Message in Her Drawing

Have you ever wanted to get back at a professor for assigning multiple projects all on the same day?

Deadlines are the bane of a student's existence, especially since some professors assign projects and set deadlines all at the same time. It may be possible to start working on some of these projects earlier so you can move on to the next ones, but inspiration can be hard to come by. And if anything, deadlines also add to one's inspiration to pass a subject and not have to repeat it in the next semester.

One design student has almost had it with her professor, and so she decided to subtly speak up against it in one of her submissions.

Lama Ali's professor gave her three finals to finish all on the same day. Considering these are artwork submissions, it would be almost impossible to conceptualize, execute, and finalize her artwork while also getting some time off to eat and sleep....
