Artist of the Week: Impossible Motion

This week's artist comes from The Daily Dish (and onwards to NPR) via the lovely Janis. Which all bring you to this mind boggling video.

Using just glue and cardboard Dr. Kokichi Sugihara (at the Meiji Institute for Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences in Japan) makes seemingly impossible constructs. He understands how the brain interprets what the eyes see and has learned how to make the most fantastical structures. You know what you are seeing isn't possible, but...then the image rotates and all is revealed. If you have a 13 or so minutes to spare I highly recommend watching the longer Impossible Motions 2.
