through the language of trompe l’oeil, london-based artist jonty hurwitz creates anamorphic sculptures which only reveal themselves once facing a reflective cylinder. the pieces are heavily based on mathematical algorithm where the π factor is integral – the distortion of the artwork projected is counteracted  at the centre of the pillar and a ‘sweet spot’ needs to be achieved through careful positioning to eventually realize the complete, recognizable object. the work intersects the realms of science and art in order to enter the mind-bending world of illusion. hurwitz will be presenting his work at the upcoming kinetica art fair starting on the 28th of february, 2013.
