People get to be inside of paintings - level 3
Have you ever liked a piece of art so much you feel like you’re part of it? Well, a museum in the Philippines is helping people do just that. Art in Island, a museum in Manila, created by a group of Korean artists, features over a hundred unique three dimensional paintings that encourage people to pose in front of them. Each artwork is created in such a way that when photographed from specific angles, they create optical illusions to make a person appear part of the picture.
Even though at most museums you’d be told to look and not touch, this concept tells people to do the exact opposite. Each hallway sports a different theme, with some including familiar classic pieces, such as the “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci and “The Scream” by Edvard Munch, modified in order to allow others to add their own touch of creative genius.
The museum hopes to expand on its collection in the future, which will include more types of perspective art and a workshop for students to get experience in how to paint three dimensional images.
