Artist Transforms a Pile of Trash into a Mind-Bending Anamorphic Illusion

French artist Bernard Pras creates artwork using a technique called anamorphosis, a distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to use special devices to see the complete artwork.
His latest project on exhibit at Palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval, near Lyon, France is a portrait of Ferdinand Cheval (a French postman who spent thirty-three years of his life building Le Palais idéal in Hauterives), made up of various objects found around the installation site which requires being viewed from a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image.

Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.

Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.

Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.

Chinchilla fun fact: Their newborn babies are like little pieces of fluffy popcorn. You could easily just toss a handful in your mouth.

Chinchilla fun fact: Don’t toss a handful into your mouth.
