As someone who has (allegedly) taken LSD in the galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and watched the flowers in various paintings blossom right before my eyes, I recognize the visual illusions created by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro in “Beauty.” Let’s leave it at that.

  1. This is great! I couldn’t help myself from wanting to see a 2nd version with Terry Gilliam style animations.

  2. Did you really feel the need for the whole “look at me, I (allegedly) dropped acid in the MoMA!” bit? Can you think of anyone who really gives two shits either way?

  3. Awesome – made me realise how much, and how little, is captured in paintings and photographs. One minute movement makes a whole lot of difference. Amazing!
