I’ve got to hand it to Simon C. Page, the man knows how to make some phenomenal, mind-bending patterns. If you’re unfamiliar with his name I can assure you that you’ve probably seen his work before. He creates these fantastic pieces which seem math-like in their nature, filled with intricate line work and mind-bending optical illusions. His most recent print, Optical Ripple, may be his most intriguing piece yet.
From afar Optical Ripple looks like reality is beginning to stretch apart at it’s very seams. Take a closer look and you can start to see the complex details that make the piece possible. Not to sound demeaning, but almost starts looking like the most complex crossword puzzle ever envisioned. But you step back, look at the piece with some distance between you and it, reality yet again begins to tear apart, leaving a chaotic mess that’s hard to truly stare into.
