These Rooms 'Destroy' Depth Perception, Freak Out Your Brain

On the Los Vegas strip, specifically on the fourth floor of a building whose street-level is one giant Louis Vuitton store, is an art installation designed to, according to a writer for Medium, "completely destroy any visual cues about the size and shape of the room." How? Artist James Turrell paints rooms entirely in one color, then uses fastidiously-placed lights to blow out every shadow and corner, so the room becomes a detail-less abyss one's brain desperately (and fruitlessly) tries to define. In fact, after standing in the space for a little while, your brain just "starts to make things up." The entire story, this way. [Medium via Boing Boing]
