Garbage Face Optical IllusionSo, the illusion was lil’ too obvious for us yesterday, ayeh? I agree. But look at what birdie brought in today! Once again you’ll notice some kind of face figure, moreover it’s easy to see the face again, but the main difference between this and previous Octavio’s artwork is that the formation on your right wasn’t painted. It’s a real-life scene, and the image you see is a photo of an actual “exhibit”.

I’m not exactly sure of the origin, and whether this is some kind of prepared art installation, or maybe an “accidental” gem instead. With later being less possible, I believe that the person who deposited all the junk at this particular location, knew exactly what he or she was doing, and how to arrange all the garbage to form something that makes sense. This optical illusion greatly reminds me of what the store owner in Burkina Faso did to his shop.

    You might want to check your spelling of ‘garbage’ in the title Vurdlak

    Great pic…I think you mean garbage rather than grabage…FYI.

    WHOA SPOOOOKY!!!! Very nice though!

  6. Terra says:

    Nice! Very clever how they tied in the tunnel.

  7. Pygormus says:

    It’s “garbage”, not “grabage” and “later being less possible” would be better as “the latter being less likely”.

    Just trying to help.

    Oops, spelling error in the title.

  10. Karlie says:

    Wow, pretty cool arrangment. It’s amazing what the right perspective can do!!

  11. Joanna says:

    I’d like to see a photo taken at a different angle, too, so I can try to discern what “grabage” was used. It’s very good.

  13. Emiel says:

    It’s a nice illusion, but it’s really simular to the last one.. and it’s still a bit too obvious just like the last one

  14. Angelina Fu says:

  15. servilan42 says:

  21. Narnia says:

    no offence V, but these illusions are no where near as good as they used to be :(

  22. Poppy says:

    Wow. That’s pretty cool :)

  23. gennia11 says:

  24. Jilly says:

    skilled garbage artist :D not only he managed to create some kind of face, but also a lenient expression

  25. Kat says:

    It hurts my eyes to try and distinguish all the separate features of the junk pile. I really like how the artist used the tunnel. All in all, amazing sculpture, if not much of a complex illusion. (First comment, I think -.-)

  26. raychill says:

    this is awesome it looks like robin williams!! good job!

  27. Vurdlak, you are getting more interesting all the time! This art installation is very well done. A lot of people will call it nothing but junk, and they are right. But it is put together to form a piece of illusion art. Very well done.

  28. Røb says:

    Yay for Grabage! It rhymes with Cabbage! :D

  29. Stephen says:

    Clearly no accident, but brilliantly done.

  30. beckshino says:

  31. Tor Chfire says:

    Robin Williams. Totally.

  32. Elliot says:

    I likes!

  33. Dolphin says:

    I like it.Much better than the last one.

  34. servilan42 says:

    OMG, it is! It is Robin Williams.

  35. Cheryl Sandford says:

    This is absolutely wonderful. I have seen other exhibits of ‘junk’ art but this one tickles me more than most! And, yes, Robin Williams was the first thing that popped into my mind!! Shades of Bicentennial Man!

  36. Terry Daniels says:

    I agree with geckshino it is Robin Williams

  37. Linda Field says:

    I love the ingenuity of the imagination

  38. Selma Ozi Cahtarevic says:

  39. coolez says:

    they are not random garbage LOL

  40. Adrian says:

    It would be nice if you credited the photos.

  41. Leigh Heagney says:

    nice work I wonder is the sculptor and the photographer the same artist? another perspective would be interesting

  42. Tommy says:

    I see Ghandi!

  43. Val says:
