Two-Minute Mind-Bending Demonstration of Perspective Anamorphosis

Anamorphosis is a technique you’ve probably seen used many times, even if you never knew what it was called. It’s the projection technique that sidewalk artists use to make it seem like their drawings are three-dimensional when viewed from a specific angle.
