Reflecting On Perspectives

Shaun Hays's avatar Shaun Hays

***above photo(s) are for reference only. This is NOT the ARTPRIZE SUBMISSION*** please read to the END... I render 3D chalk drawings on flat surfaces around the world. I want to do something that has never been done: create a large 3D illusion using the chalk sticks AS the art. The above photo is a completely flat surface drawing completed (from start to finish) in only 6 hours, without graphs - totally freehand. It is of an already warped image... The reflections in the Cloud Gate Sculpture in Chicago. See the warped shape of the image in the second photo (from wrong intended viewing angle). Double warping! HERE IS MY A.P. SUBMISSION: a similar but larger rendering of a chrome sphere (a la M. C. Escher "Hand with Reflecting Sphere") that will reflect the environment and architecture of the vendor area, but instead of drawing it, I will BUILD IT out of thousands of colored Chalk sticks bundled on end. Think of each stick of chalk as a pixel. This would be the world's FIRST! Call me
