It’s been a year since Chicago-based graphic designer Thomas Quinn created this optical illusion on the blank walls of the room above his parents’ garage. Titled Face Reality As It Is, Quinn uses a simple sans serif font to put forth a quite complicated message.
The installation challenges his audience’s idea of perception and what is real. The message appears distorted and loss from any other point of the room except one; giving the impression that reality isn’t subjective but concrete — but nay! — The true message is that reality can be warped beyond recognition while still maintaining its original definition.
