I think all of us have had more than a sneak peek at how life can be over the rest of
the year and possibly, years to come. We hear a lot about how our future is going to
be entwined with the current epidemic. So it’s up to us to figure out ways to thrive
even in its existence.
Lockdown has been hard for all our spirits, but my creative side saved the day and
many months, when I was stuck alone at home in Bangalore! Challenging myself and
building on my existing skills became a way of life.
I figured it would be a nice idea to let you all know about my creative pursuits and I
hope it will inspire you to ponder more, learn more, and create more!
Illusions have been a fascination to me over many years, but all I did was look at
images and ogle at them, impressed. But these tough times got me to pick up a pen
and a paper and try them for myself. A great inspiration for illusions has been M.C
Escher : https://mcescher.com/. A visionary in terms of physical construction of
images and construed versions of reality. Below, is some of his work.
Since his work was quite complex, I tried a more basic version of illusions, which
proved to be just a start to my deeper journey into illusions. And here are the results!
