Sharing link: http://d.ro/magicworld - More info about this video and music below:
Created by French artist François Abélanet, "Qui croire?" (English: "Who to believe?") an anamorphic, "ephemeral" garden displayed in front of Paris' main city hall the "Hôtel de Ville".

I shot this video by hand which made the footage very shaky. I used software to stabilize the video and smooth out the shakiness which gives it a curious digitally distorted look. The reason it goes in reverse is due to there being a long line for access to the viewing point preventing a continuous one shot recording. This illusion is the result of the science of how the brain interprets imagery. Laser technology was relied upon to project the image of the globe/sphere for its construction.
The audio portion of this video is a segment of music by composer Maurice Ravel from the French ballet, "Daphnis et Chloé" first performed in Paris at the Chatêlet theatre (a very short walking distance away from Paris' main city hall).

This optical illusion looks a bit like a green Star Wars Death Star.
