Painting on the house for real this time, painted this optical illusion for a party we have at our house each year. I didnt get to finish it completely ,I wanted to paint the inside of the house through the hole in the wall but I ended up just making it dark. Some of the front baloons are real baloons, they shrunk a bit before I took the photo so they seem a bit out of scale with the painted ones.

New Scientist TV: Friday Illusion: Mystery of the collapsing house

It looks like a house falling apart at the seams. But although the construction seems to have hinges that open and close, it actually has no bending or moving parts. Keep watching the video and its true form is revealed.
