Walking on water

These installations (or more precisely drawings on the floor and ceiling) take advantage of our use of textures to perceive a third dimension/depth out of monocular cues. I’m curious how effective they are from different viewpoints. Perhaps there are some accidental views that make the texture completely boring instead of completely cool.

Here’s some great examples:

    I wouldn’t think there would be a particular viewpoint that would destroy the illusion, but a moving viewpoint would.
