Austrian based Artist Thomas Medicus latest project is called “Emergence Lab”. He’s background in traditional stained glass windows inspired him to create hand painted anamorphic sculpture. The title of the project is derived from the phenomenon “Emergence, a process whereby larger entities, patterns, and regularities arise through interactions among smaller or simpler entities that themselves do not exhibit such properties.

“Emergence Lab” is created through a plug system made out of 216 laser cut acrylic glass strips, a cubic framework, which contains layers pointing towards all three spatial dimensions. On each side of the cube, there is one anamorphic painting that can always only be seen from one point. Since every figure fills the exact same surface as its counterpart on the opposite side, the rear image is covered while looking at one figure.
