Why is the third dimension so fascinating? A further dimension gives more information and space for opportunities, allows a higher scope for communication and visual experiences. James Cameron’s 3D science fiction adventure »Avatar« (2009) started a whole new era in form modeling. The influence of the third dimension was felt not only in fashion but also in film, architecture, photography and more. This hype, however, was not entirely new. The swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd (*1915 in Stockholm, 2. Febuary 2002) and the english mathematician Roger Penrose devised the so called ›Impossible Object‹ - a two dimensional triangle that appears to be closed from a certain perspective, however its three dimensional form is entirely different. The effect is realised by tricking our visionary senses. And here, a master of this discipline, one must mention M.C. Escher.
This collection is inspired by impossible constructions, multiple dimensions and the art of tricking our visionary senses.
