Mind Trip of the Week #41: Making a Mind Trip

So, we here at the Mind Tripping Laboratories decided to try a little experiment with Mind Trippery since that is what we do!  Take a look at the picture below.

This picture looks impossible, doesn’t it?  I assure you this is not trick photography or image altering.  This is how it looks . . . . . from one angle.

Let’s look at it from another angle.

It doesn’t look so pretty now does it?  In fact this is an ugly angle.  But if you adjust your point of view like in the first picture . . . it becomes amazing… instead of this miss made, broken looking cube.  Believe it or not, it took quite a bit of time to construct and then photograph it from just the right angle. Building the gaps in the wood and constantly sanding and adjusting them to get just the right distance was time consuming.  But, hey, you’re worth it for a good mind trip.  Look at the next picture to see how it looked on the shop floor as we were still designing it.

You can see the angles aren’t just right yet.  There are still some gaps between the broken frame pieces.  All in all this took us about a day to create and it was fun.  This is what we do at the Mind Tripping Labs.  We love our job!
