Anamorphosis is a distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to use a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image. This is an artistic technique that dates back to the early Renaissance.
What’s interesting about these anamorphic pieces is that most of them look like rubbish without a mirror cylinder. Some of them are so distorted that you can only guess at what the reflected image will reveal. You could probably even use this technique to pass a message on to a fellow secret agent.
