These black and white installations are totally trippy exploration of space and our relationship to it

If you’ve ever wanted to experience an M.C. Escher artwork IRL, these installations by Peter Kolger are a must-see for you. The Austrian artist’s latest fun house installations at the ING Art Center in Brussels are completely overwhelming (in the best way). Kolger uses graphic black and white line work to transform otherwise pedestrian spaces into psychedelic art spaces for visitors to explore, wander and interact with.peter-kogler-room-installation-1 It’s the interaction of the space with the visitor — both visual and physical — that is so transformative. The stimulus that the twisting and curving warped lines provide the visitor is so encompassing and thorough that it almost becomes a meditative space where you literally can’t think about anything else other than what’s right in front of you. The mind-bending installations are intricate, thoughtful, precise and show tremendous skill, passion and a dedication to perfection.

Once he saw the ratio, McGucken began overlaying the ratio diagram over Adams’ public domain photographs to confirm his initial thoughts— and there it was, over and over again. It seems Adams never mentioned using the Golden Ratio so it’s unclear whether he employed it consciously or subconsciously. Either way, his use of this aesthetically pleasing principle is no surprise; his landscapes are [h/t /] Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-2 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-3 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-4 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-5 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-6 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-7 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-8 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-9 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-10 Ansel-Adams-Golden-Ratio-Elliot-McGucken-22
