anamorphosis--n. pl. an·a·mor·pho·ses

1. a. An image that appears distorted unless it is viewed from a special angle or with a special instrument.

b. The production of such an image.

2. Evolutionary increase in complexity of form and function.


I was intrigued, yet again, by one of the short films on the famed 'short films of the brothers quay' called "anamorphosis". so I went to anamorphosis.com and stole the following images. enjoy!

I used to have that Brotheres Quay video but I lent it to some asshole bitch and she moved away with it. :(


Anamorphosis is facinating by the way I will try to find cool paintings.

the thing on the bottom is pretty fucking weird


is a completely perfect to scale skull.. skewed.


dont you think thats kinda weird..


i mean if i was some dood in tights.. standing next to another historical dood in tights.. and there was this perfect skewed skull in front of me..

as i posed for my portrait.. id think it was pretty weird.



side note.. not that it has to do with anamorphic perspective..

but you know that painting of the married couple... with the mirror in the background which reflects the room..

reminds me alot of bladerunner.


anyways.. just always makes me think about how an artist even back then puts subversive themes in their works.
