Vertigo: Op Art and a History of Deception, 1520 to 1970
28cm x 20cm. 208 pages, colour illustrations. Pictorial papered boards.
“Op art works are by no means only directed at our sense of sight. With their powerful effects and optical illusions they lead to experiences of powerful sensory overkill. A dizzying overview of sensory illusions in art, from Piranesi to Riley, this eclectic volume presents a deceptive game of the senses, covering a wide spectrum ranging from panel paintings, reliefs and objects to installations and experiential spaces, to film and computer-generated art.” (publisher’s blurb)
