Amber sunlight shines into the corner of the room from the window. The shadows projected on the wall erode each other away, and as this increases, the three-dimensional shape of the room flickers between the actual walls and an illusory vision produced by the flatness of a drawing. It is a miraculous room whose shape changes with the spectator’s perceptual actions. Takashi Ishida’s Gestalt, an elaborate animated film made by continuous repainting of the wall of a room, is a tour de force of shifting representational space that plays with conventions of perspective and effects of spatial perception.
