Step Into an Optical Illusion

In Demon Hill, the rules of gravity don't apply as you expect them to. Down is not down, exactly. The room, created by Los Angeles artist Julian Hoeber and on display at the Harris Lieberman...

they had a furnished version of this in a museum i frequented when i was a kid. i saw it when i was around 3 or 4 and it really freaked me out. i thought the gravity in the room actually changed, it was really cool

Wow how do they do that? Only thing I can think of is that there are fans that secretly push your sideways wow nice trick
Report spam or abuse
fans?  the house is tilted so you are off line of the edges of the house.  Makes for a great illusion though.

I have actually been to Mackinac Island Mystery Stop and the I went into a building that was flat on the ground but inside there was all flat ground but there was a gravitational pull. And in one room there was a metal chair on the floor and we lifted it up and put it on the ledge and we sat In the chair and it was like floating in mid air!!!

Reminds me of that room I saw in a psychology text book that was built at off angles and if a person stands on one side of the room they look bigger. I also read that the room was ineffective with primitive people because they do not have square things in their world. I bet if we got one of these guys and showed them this video, they would have no idea what we were talking about.

+danbholm Did you know that primitive people living in the jungle do not see that illusion because they are not used to square rooms?

i think the room is tilted but the camera is tilted as well so the room looks normal
Report spam or abuse
exactly what i meant, we are looking at this through a titled camera
Report spam or abuse
Alex porter I went to the US and all of them are true no camera was tilted
Report spam or abuse
This is only interesting to really really really dumb people, and if you for more than ½ a second didn't realize that the camera was tilted, then you are dumb
Report spam or abuse
You Internet people are funny, always calling dumb, fake, gay, or whatnot. Literally, the first frame of the video gives away the illusion. The tilting of the camera is a directorial choice that was not supposed to fool your intelligence as much as your expectations, same way the exhibit does.

+Nicolas Rivera omg you stupid idiot! both are tilted. Wow how can anyone be so retarded??

Make a house tipped a bit to a point then cover it with another shell that looks like a upright house. Then if any robbers come to that house might as well say the following. "Im f***ed", "I should stop doing coccane", or "I must repent at once, becase if not then mother nature will screw my life!"

I've been to the Cosmos Mystery Spot in SD. Now, lets have an explanation of how your height relative to another person shifts at "mystery spots".

everyone knows the mystery spot was never real, everyone knew the trick, it's just the artist lazy cunts that are now getting up to speed

In my opinion it's the room not the camera angle, you can see at the end where he tried to pour water into a glass, even though he already knows the room is tilted his senses are betraying him to believe that he is holding the glass in line with where he wants to pour the water... he misses totally. Therefore the room is to blame and they are not trying to trick you with the camera, that is how it really looks.

hey i like this video. it's cool.

this is so awesome whoever built that they are a genious

Very stupid description. Gravity doesn't apply as you expect them to? Yes they do. But your mind is confused since the room is built in a way so that gravity seems to work differently.

Lol, This happens to me ever time I stand on a slanted rock. Was expecting something a bit more exciting, but I guess we can't all have the world be the way we want.

i've been to one but couldnt bare it, made me really nauseated
Report spam or abuse
but surely when you're actually *in* the room - you're just in a slanty room? It's only because the camera is fixed to the axis of the room that it looks - on screen - like it's flat. They're saying that you percieve it to be flat, so I guess it's a psychological thing, but I dunno, I guess I'd have to actually experience it to find out, but in my experience of these optical illusion based art installations, I have always just felt like I was in a slanty room!

When I went into the room I wasn't disoriented at all. I reacted the same exact way that I react when walking up or down a hill. It was not at all a "mind-bending" experience the way they make it seem in this video.

Yes! It really did look this disorienting when we were in the room. I felt a little sea sick actually.

I went to this exhibition. It's definitely not the camera. It's the way the room is built and they way the mirror and chair are positioned.

Fact: gravity feels the same in that room as outside of it after having 20 beers

Here's an optical illusion. Point both pointer fingers toward each other right in front of your eyes staring straight. Bring them towards each other without them touching. Move them back and forth away from your face until it looks good. NOW what do you see? It's called 'ghost finger'.
