Threshold By James Hopkins

The artist’s sculpture, “Threshold”, transforms into either a One, a Two or a Three… depending on where the viewer is standing.

Perceptual Effects

James Hopkins uses optical illusions to generate renewed ways of seeing.


“I want to explore the role of judgment in connection to the process of vision and investigate different ways of looking that embrace perceptual effects. The work is not just about an illusion or effect but more importantly a way into discovering that sight (our most relied upon sense when looking at art) can be untrustworthy.” (Spindle Magazine)
