Shigeo Fukuda, visual trickster

Fukuda’s works are illusions. The featured photo is of his ‘Underground Piano.’ He broke down a piano and “reassembled” it so that if the viewer stood in a certain place in the room and looked in the mirror’s reflection, the piano would look whole. James Geary describes Fukuda’s art: “They play practical jokes on the visual system, making us question where the border lies between illusion and reality– and whether we can even believe our own eyes.”
