Optical Illusion Art Made from Strips of Tape by Damien Gilley

American artist Damien Gilley creates these complex optical illusions only with strips of colored tape. First he visits the location (gallery walls, public spaces…), takes photos of the architecture and composition of the space, then sketches his design onto the pictures taken and projects his vision onto the walls of the site where he finally places the strips of sticky tape.

His current work ‘Axis Index’ is exhibiting at Suyama Space in Seattle, Washington —  an installation that transforms the architecture of the gallery into a complex mirage that manipulates and distorts its natural perspective.

    I love optical illusions that plays with the eyes. I’ve always wanted to do something like these but never got around to do them.
