AUTHOR’S NOTE: This post might not be too informative. I would just like to share the experiences I had from the two countries that I recently visited. I’ll try my best to lay out some points that could probably be of use for future reference.
To see is to believe.
Korea’s very own Trick-Eye Museum opened it’s new international branch in Resorts World Sentosa Singapore last June 8, 2014.
Trick-Eye is derived from the French word trompe-l’oeil meaning deceive the eye. It’s an art technique that turns 2D images to 3D images through optical illusions therefore making it appear real in the naked eye. The museum has paintings on the walls, ceilings and floors as well as installations that would trick the viewer’s eye and will make them feel that it’s alive. Some kids would enjoy the place but would not probably understand what the fuss is all about.
The museum is made up of six zones – Love, Circus, Masterpiece, Safari, Fairytale and Adventure. Unlike other museums, the visitors in here are encouraged to touch and get up close to everything. Each exhibit incorporates a technique on how to pose or which angle to snap the photo from in order to achieve the right perspective of the picture.
In order to enjoy this place, you’ll have to bring a camera, you’re wide range of imagination and your best facial expression to have a good photo result 🙂
Have fun viewing some of the photos we took from Trick-Eye’s!
This is the perfect place to visit with friends and family. Something unique, fun and interactive. Just enjoy, be imaginative and creative. It’s for a kid at heart like me!
- Bring a camera and make sure it’s fully charged.
- Try to read the poster beside very exhibit for instructions to have a peak of your final image.
- Wear comfortable clothes. Ladies, don’t wear skirts or any low-cut and short dresses because you’ll end up doing crazy and hilarious poses.
