Adaptation Part B: Reverspective Idea

I am keeping an eye on the extracts as I am working on the overall mood of the composition and finding ways to express that atmospheric feeling through different techniques, however, after a tutorial with Phil, he suggested to look at Patrick Hughes who turns perspective upside down in order to create a feeling of disorientation which I believe will work for I want to achieve.

Patrick Hughes, a British artist, creator of the "reverspective" which is an optical illusion made on a 3D surfance in which he places the nearest parts far and vice versa.

"Reverspectives are three-dimensional paintings that when viewed from the front initially give the impression of viewing a painted flat surface that shows a perspective view. However as soon as the viewer moves their head even slightly the three dimensional surface that supports the perspective view accentuates the depth of the image and accelerates the shifting perspective far more than the brain normally allows. This provides a powerful and often disorienting impression of depth and movement. The illusion is made possible by painting the view in reverse to the relief of the surface, that is, the bits that stick farthest out from the painting are painted with the most distant part of the scene" Patrick Hughes
