|It could be straight out of the Black Swan set...|
With its blurred walls and atmospheric fog, you would be forgiven for thinking this image of ANZAS Dance Studio had been digitally enhanced. It is, however, a striking optical illusion devised by the architects - Beijing based Tsutsumi and Associates - who have created the impression of mist simply by painting thousands of tiny graduated dots onto the mirrored walls. The design challenges our perception of space, and uses curves in the apex of each corner to further blur the distinction between floor and wall. Disorientating and intoxicating, the effect is nothing short of dreamlike.
