Devorah Sperber creates optical illusions using thousands of spools of thread to create pixilated versions of famous paintings from art history. The spools are hung in long, adjacent columns. When viewed by the naked eye, they are barely recognizable. When viewed through an optical device, usually a “viewing sphere” (a transparent sphere the size of a baseball), the abstractions are rotated 180 degrees like the human eye into a remarkably detailed and faithful image of the original painting.
