Invisible Poem Paintings by Lu Xinjian

Utilizing pattern recognition concepts behind stereograms (anyone remember Magic Eye books?),

Utilizing pattern recognition concepts behind stereograms (anyone remember Magic Eye books?), Chinese artist Lu Xinjian has created a series of paintings with classic poems from Charles Baudelaire and William Shakespeare buried beneath the visual illusion. Each acrylic on canvas painting blends a myriad of colors and patterns through reinterpretation of each poem’s characters, and requires a patient and steady eye to decipher. You can read a full essay from Xinjian on his project here and the motivations behind it.
