Year 10 explore anamorphic art
Some of our GCSE Year 10 students have been looking at the important role mathematics plays in the creation of art, focusing on centric or natural perspective. In particular, they have looked at anamorphosis -- a clever perspectival technique where an image appears distorted when viewed head-on but resolves when seen when seen from a specific viewpoint or angle. This trick has intrigued viewers for centuries and Hans Holbein's anamorphic skull on the floor of in The Ambassadors, 1533, is one famous example.
Our students created their anamorphic images to resolve when viewed using a curved mirror. Here are just a few of their brilliant results.
