This is fascinating. These rooms are painted so that, when looked at right, optical illusions will appear. Very cool indeed. MORE PICTURES INSIDE!

    This too cool…

    This is great!

  • geeeeeeeeeeeeee

    booooooooooooooooooooring

  • Something Wicked?


    Whoa! This site is amzing!!! I`ve tried almost everything here, and nothing sucks.. Wicked!

  • Stefan

    ANYONE KNOW HOW THIS IS DONE? I’ve been experimenting with this and the only thing I can think of is that the images were projected onto the walls and painted in.

  • vurdlak

    unfortunately, I don’t know how they weredone. They were submitted to me, and first I thought they used projector to project images on walls, later I found that impossible (if you project image of a sqare on the bent wall, image will be distorted and broken trapezoid or smthng….

    but now when time has passed, I imagine they could still use a projector, and skew with the image real tme with PC- projector untill they get projected what they want, and then paint over it….

    (for exmple they skew with elipse on their laptop, until it shows projected circle in the room walls and pipes… get it?)

  • Algeronin

    damn!!

    I got to have this at my place!
    doesn’t anybody know how this is done?
    I really want to decorate my appartement like this.
    then I’ll drop some acid and dance around!

  • mrwally1954

    This is so unreal , it is almost unbelievable . Very well done , somebody has a wicked imagination.

  • Farted

    WOW!! I could look at these all day…. I agree with Algeronin though!!!!!

  • hi

    i dont get dis wil sum1 explain it??????????

  • Rachit duncan

    This is really cool. I wish I could do this to my room.

  • Trevor Blackbird

    This is how it could be done:

    1. Take a photo of the room
    2. Load it into photoshop and create a top layer
    3. Paint the geometry on top layer
    4. Save the image without the original photo
    5. Project it from the SAME point where you took the photo from

    It is important that you have the same focal length and the optical centre must be the same as well.

  • Yathern

    What they do is:
    1-use a projector against a glass to see what it would look like against the scenery
    2-then they would find out where the glass projection would meet up with the walls and paint there.

    Simple.

  • my2cents

    anyone notice the disappering monitor in the yellow target photo? Also, the sprinkler system seems to move.

  • karen

    This is really awesome! I just love them, you could have fun hidden messages using that trick. I so want to try it now!

  • dfgaykm

    totally wicked!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Leion

    This is totally cool
    That look too cool to be true.
    In fact some of them look like they were photoshopped

  • Flora Lauren

    So Coooooooool!!!

  • Bob is Cool

    How are they done?

  • Farrukh

    An easy way:
    ————
    Just did it on a prototype (model) of a house once. Made a happy face like this.

    1. Buy a lazer light.

    2. Put a carved face in front of it. Some come with most of the lights like happy face, circles etc.

    3. Turn all lights off in the house.

    4. Put it at a point whereever you want this illusion from.

    5. Paint the aread that is lighted with lazer light on the walls and stuff.

  • Chain

    Bob is Cool: Read the other posts. (though there seems to be some uncertainty on how the projection was done)

    Theese photos look quite unreal from the “correct” angles. Very nicely done.
    Wish i could see it in real life :)

  • sam

    why does everything have to be photoshopped, can’t anything be real anymore? You people are conspiracy freaks. The pictures are real!

  • DLee

    wow… makes me wanna do that to one of my rooms…

  • Brandi

    This is awesome! Hhow do they do it? It must take a lot of patience!

  • Nadine

    sorry!! when i said fake i ment like not really on da walls!! made on a computr or somtin! :)

  • elz

    freky thats all i can say

  • Hamaka

    i think this stuff is made by using a projector on the wall then drawing the outlines
    if you have a projector draw your symbol on your computer and project it as a presentation (powerpoint)
    on your wall, sorry for my poor english, hope this helps

  • dayvee

    Yo sam! The pics are real, but the marks aint.
    Hey Chain! Ya’ll won’t ever see em. No wall was ever painted – only each of the two pictures were painted one after the other. But good work!

  • Tod Beev

    These are not hard to make, but the idea to do it is the cool thing.
    They were made with a projector.
    You project your graphic form onto the surfaces and mark where the light falls. Then paint in.
    No adjusting necessary.
    Yes vurdluk, if you project a square onto a wall at an angle, the square will become distorted. But if you faithfully paint in wherever the light falls, and then go position your point of view at the same point that the projector lens was, you will see a perfect square.

  • some guy

    funny how some thigs can look completly differant

  • Barnabus Collins

    You people are idiots . . . especially the ‘rational’ explainers with their whole “pane of glass” theory. These are foolish directions illustrating the users of this site’s general ineptitude in following a simple line of intellectual progression. The ‘explanation’ follows the same fallacious simplicity of “Hey, hand me that piano.” Sounds simple; only a 2-step process according to one poster. However, the exact path of the lines would still need to be traced precisely. I suppose the next ‘thoughtful’ step in the process, giving it all of the newest generation’s ‘thought process’, would be a hand-held laser pointer. Perhaps in a silly shape, like a star or comet (tee-hee!)!
    Idiots. It’s all photoshopped. If not, find the rooms. A simple bit of evidence, ya lazy gits. Good God, the Net’s getting more and more like interactive freakin’ television!

  • ya mum

    this looks fake

  • Spud

    they should do this in schools

  • The Padre

    These are just great. What a trip it would be to have a bedroom with a magical exit to the unknown on one wall. Thanks for sharing these.

  • M 2 the H O

    why does everthing have 2 b photoshopped this and photoshopped that, take the worlds biggest roll of yarn. if u saw it in a pic u wud say its photoshopped, but cause its on display u believe it.
    and stop callin every1 idiots and retards, u make it sound that ur sooo smart and its OBVIOUSLY done this way. ur the idiots i tells ya!
    its simply a work of art ok!!!
    ps. my friends house is done like this so i KNOW its real,
    which is what makes you sound even stupider,
    ye bum

  • marybeth

    ehh, yea they r cool rnt they?
    i make those 4 a livin, and well done guys, ur right,
    we use pc. projectors, depending on how many awquard parts u have in the room, u sumtimes have to use the glass 2 vision it. and no, the air isnt painted thats part of the illusion, its stuff like the sides of black tvs that get painted and it makes it look like the air b4 it is painted when its not. i came on 2 this site cause my friend told me there was some illusion rooms here 2, n yea, there pretty cool, huh?

  • Jarihd ihtar

  • niki

    Even if the ones here are photoshopped, which i seriously doubt, they could have been done in real life. Why would someone go through the trouble of making the images, when they could just paint them. Then they could show the real thing off to their friends instead of just fakes. But i still don’t have any proof.

    omg this is reali confusing, my eyez r goin funi! LOL

  • maybe

    nice pics looks really cool.. photo shopped or not
    couple things… umm the illusion of the warehoue/ garage the lighting/ shadows/ depht perception confuses me.. help me out. they would have to paint with different shades of red/orange to get a bright and solid line right.. and the foreground, mid and background they would have to paint the lines with different withs right (ex: things in fore ground are appear bigger so the line would have to be thinner and background things look smaller so you would have to paint bigger..) so why in the skewed angle the lines look the same shades and with? same with lines on buildings pics

    i am almost positive that they used a very nice laser level. used mostly in construction for lighting layouts and ceiling grids. i hope this answers some questions as to how they got the lines projected on the walls, and how the lines made it around the corners. this is only my opinion, but i do know that lasers bend. Anyway, this is amazing and i plan on doing this in my new york home. i can’t wait!

    To those of you that claim photoshop, you should know: 1. the zigzag (bottom photo is in new york) 2. I have personally seen a HUGE installment of orange triangles in Switzerland- it’s awesome and one buildings (you must see in to believe it, really) 3. His name is Felice Varini, and has a website, DVD and book. Look it up, you “know it alls” since you are WRONG WRONG WRONG.. and .. there are artists that have been doing this for a long time… you can find info if you try.

  • Ale

    Bravo Mr Varini (et al.) for your minimalistic inversion of the classical trompe l’oeil concept in painting. The goal there was to create the illusion of a third dimension where there was none (or, in architecture, to increase the perception of deepness in perspective).

    I must admit I’m more impressed by the classical version.

    Some might like to have a look at http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trompe-l'%C5%93il

    it would probably look a lot less impressive in real life since you can only see it in 2-d in the picture but you would be able to see depth in real life

    • TKstyles

      This paint was applied on a FLAT(2D) surface to mimic 3D….your eye’s will still believe it’s 3D. BTW, you actually see the image in 3D in the picture(that’s the whole point of the illusion and in real life it would be even more impressive, due to depth perception), so thanks for your ignorance. And the T.V is mounted on a wall that can’t possibly be seen from the non-3D picture. This is real.

    While the theory is pretty cool, the pictures are FAKE. Can anyone else not see the pixelization of the shapes that are “painted” in the rooms and buildings? Look closely and you will be able to tell. If you were truely painting this, there would be no pixelation. Another note..if you look closely, you can see through the paint..another sign that they are computer generated, layered, photos.

    Did no one notice the room with the blue square with the X in it???? The one pic shows the lines painted on the cabinet (maybe it’s a bookshelf?) on the right side of the picture, but in the other picture, it’s not even touching the cabinet. It’s a fake, and you’ve fallen for it.

    Can’t make it much easier to prove than that.

    IF YOU LOOK AT THE PICTURE’S PROPERLY, THEY ARE TAKEN AT DIFFERENT ANGLES. IN BOTH PIC’S THE CABINET IS PAINTED ON. IN THE 1st PIC YOU CAN ONLY SEE ABOUT A 3rd OF THE CABINET THATS WHY IT LOOKS LIKE IT HASN’T BEEN PAINTED ON WHICH MAKES UP THE VERTCAL LINE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SQUARE. IN THE 2nd PIC THAT LINE IS A SHADOW IN CASE YOU WERE CONFUSED.

    Can’t make it much easier to prove than that.

    the yellow circle is not real. there is a small television screen in that room and the screen itself had been painted. and it is PAINT, you can’t see right trough it. but the screen is a bit tinted…..

    these are works by Felice Varini. he has a great webside with a lot more pictures of his paintings.

  • affy

    yo do understand that none of these pictures are real…? they all are made on pc that is visible in all pictures.
    especially pic 6 look at the small screen
    in one word Fail!

  • lucid

    for those saying these are fake, I thought so to, but as sylvain said, they are by an artist felice varini:

    This is amazing!
    My favorite one is with the concentric circles. Any way it’s looked at it has a flow to it, an elegance that is not found in some of the other ones. Any way it’s seen, it’s art. And then the full frontal view is killer. It’s almost mind-boggling, walking into that spiral of circles.

    The oval in red and white was really cool too! Because it was in a winding corridor :)

  • Hello

    fake or real i don’t really care but this is just cool!

  • cheyenne

    very cool but confusing..disney channel did something like that with the jonas bros. they painted an all white room wit blu to make it look lik the disney channel symbol at an angel.
    thank is very cool..the croos one kinda looks like a mirror but the best one is the bathroom circle. and this is defiently not fake u dum dums so if u dont like it get off this website cuz no one but haters like haters only if they dont hate on eachother but we aint hatin on u so why hate on vurdlak? u just hatin cuz he actually got somewhere in his life and ur hear hatin on a very cool cool guy so leave cuz haterz r unwelcomed! cool illusion!

    @affy & Koen: What’s wrong with the 6th picture and the small television? Television is attached to other wall that can’t be seen in the picture below, that’s why you don’t see the tv either. This doesn’t prove the picture is fake!

  • vera neskovska

    Illusion is very very nice and stronge;)

  • EdwardCullensGal

    If you have a look at them, they’re pretty much all fake. It’s supposed to be PAINT, not TINT, and you can see through all of them, except for the black one, and if you look at the distorted one of the black one you will see that the lines are alot thicker than the actual circle. I thought this was amazing, until I read a comment from Koen, where he/she points out that Picture 6 – The yellow circle – is fake, because look at the small screen – so fake. I hate to be a hater, but this is all fake.

  • EdwardCullensGal

    My bad!! Apologies everyone, this IS real, because while you think you are looking at see through graphics and you can ‘see the wall’ behind it, it is the grooves and corners of the wall that they had to paint over. they obviously painted over the T.V. Koen, but just not the screen. Apologies again, and this is an amazing illusion.

  • jen

    most of these pictures are photoshop. If you look carefully some of the pictures the windows are also panted and im sorry but who does that? Also in some of the rooms you can find objects like lights, tvs, and other items other then the walls are panted partially as well. As someone sad before the t.v. in that one room is partially painted yellow which again who does that?

    • Alex

      To all you haters out there, it has to be real. Vurdlak would have told us if it was photoshopped by now. And for affy and Koen, you have to look closely to realize that the screen IS NOT painted, but you think it is for gods know why. Anyway, the artist has a website with some more REAL work.

  • COOL and AWESOME :P

  • Bob

    I imagine it would be pretty simple to make these, simply project the desired image (From a projector) into a corner/war/bend and paint over the lines you see.

  • MercurY

    wowow

  • shela

    i wanna be there thats the bomb diggity

  • JayEvans

    yay 228th comment!!! Seriously, shut up and enjoy the pics.

  • vcg

    cool! awesome! i like the 10th and 11th pics.. ^^ really great!
    i really love your site.. ^^

  • Agito

    The reason it looks like you can “see through” the paint is because of the lights changing the color of the paint and making it look transparent. Take for example the red, yellow and blue squares in the windows. The part of the beam on the blue square facing us is in shadow so the paint is darker and the bottom part of the beam is in the light so its lighter. Hence the illusion that the paint is transparent, same concept for the rest. Also to dude that said its fake because of the t.v. screen if you look closely you can plainly see that the television SCREEN is not painted, but the the box around it IS painted.

  • pinadam

    im a 7 year old with email phone,and not telling.i see aout every single illusion on dis cool illusiony site

  • AK

    I usually refrain from commenting on websites; however I found an interesting video of the artist demonstrating how he does this type of art. It might come in handy for those who were interested in trying it out at home (should u have access to a nice projector) or just for quelling those photoshop rumors. Hope you’re French is good ;)
