Patrick Hughes Last week I talked about different methods of linear perspective. The challenge was to draw something using inverse perspective, in which objects that are farther away are drawn larger than what is up close, as seen in Byzantine, Chinese, Japanese, and Indian artworks. (My apologies for not including India’s use of multiple perspectives in the previous post, and big thanks to Marjorie for her reminder!) This week’s challenge might appear to be a repeat of last week’s “inverse perspective,” but this “reverse perspective” is different. Reverse perspective is an optical illusion that uses Brunelleschi’s 1 point perspective for it’s trick. This is not another method of linear perspective. But, just to muddy the waters, sometimes last week’s “inverse perspective” is referred to as “reverse perspective.” Same word, different thing. Below are some examples of an optical illusion reverse perspective, and some DIY demos. Patrick Hughes’ Reverse Perspective Patrick Hughes, Hoppera Reverse Perspective DIY Demos For demonstration, you have two options. The first is from Mrs. Belzer’s elementary school class project. Get your scissors and your glue, kids! The second demo adds an extra step and thus is more complicated, but the results are a bit more accurate in terms of the one point perspective that you’re going to reverse. Pick your preference or invent your own, and have fun! Demo 1: Mrs Belzer’s class Demo 2: Slightly more complicated, a bit more accurate (optional!)
