Garbage Face Optical Illusion


So, 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.

    Looks so cool!!!! I wonder how it was done. Awesome. Keep up the good work!

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

  • ann richmond

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

  • qwertyuiop

    This is so cool! I cant believe that that is real!

  • No one,

    WHOA SPOOOOKY!!!! Very nice though!

  • Nice! Very clever how they tied in the tunnel.

  • Pygormus

    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.

  • rajesh

    good one

  • Karlie

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

  • Joanna

    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.

  • Emiel

    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

  • Angelina Fu

  • servilan42

  • Narnia

    i think thats just as obvious!
    no offence V, but these illusions are no where near as good as they used to be :(

  • Poppy

    Wow. That’s pretty cool :)

  • gennia11

    must have ben hard. i dont have the patience so i give dat person some props! good job!

  • Jilly

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

  • Kat

    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 -.-)

  • raychill

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

  • 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.

  • Røb

    Yay for Grabage! It rhymes with Cabbage! :D

  • Stephen

    Clearly no accident, but brilliantly done.

  • beckshino

    ah! its robin williams!

  • Tor Chfire

    Robin Williams. Totally.

  • Elliot

  • Dolphin

    I like it.Much better than the last one.

  • servilan42

    OMG, it is! It is Robin Williams.

  • Cheryl Sandford

    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!

  • Terry Daniels

    I agree with geckshino it is Robin Williams

  • Linda Field

    I love the ingenuity of the imagination

  • Selma Ozi Cahtarevic

    wooow the tunnel is the best ,on top o his head WOW

  • they are not random garbage LOL

  • so puzzling

  • Adrian

    It would be nice if you credited the photos.

  • Leigh Heagney

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

  • cool.. !!

  • Tommy
