French sculptor Matthieu Robert-Ortis has utilized the transformative influence of perspective in his brilliantly executed piece, La révolution des Girafes. From one angle, it looks like a pair of elegant giraffes, but from an alternative point of view, it’s the spitting image of a giant elephant. Everything changes depending on the viewer's perspective.
In an interview with Taker Magazine, Robert-Ortis shared the running theme behind his work. He explained that the average person tends to only see what's right before his/her eyes, whether a tangible object or an abstract idea, but creative types are more likely to explore alternative angles. Robert-Ortis subtly inspires observers to question their perceptions and consider the possibilities of a new point of view.
