In the summer of 2012 I was contacted by the event agency Awesome Project about doing a commissioned perspective illusion for the 5:th anniversary of the shopping gallery “Skrapan” in Stockholm, Sweden. Since it’s one of the tallest buildings in Stockholm they wanted to incorporate the 85 m view from the top of the building in the illusion. The idea was that it would be like standing on the top of the building looking out and down. I went to Stockholm to take measurements and do the necessary preparations. It was put up at the location 28:th September 2012 and will be up for a couple of weeks outside the gallery in Stockholm. If you’re in Stockholm in October, please come by and have a look for yourself!
Unfortunately it was raining during the first day which made the ground look a lot darker than the print, but during dry conditions the ground should be much like the ground in the print. The print was made in two sections, one semi-transparent for the wall and one for the ground. The wall print measures 7,90 x 3,65 meters and the ground print 6,40 x 3,65 meters. Below you can see the result, if you would like to see more of the work behind it let me know and I’ll might do a behind the scenes movie as well. Have a look at the video at the bottom of this page for the best experience!
