If you've ever wondered what it might be like to tower over the world as a giraffe, or hunt down prey as a shark, this series of interactive helmets by artists Anne Cleary and Denis Connolly may be able to tell you.

The interactive helmets adopt unusual shapes that tend to slightly resemble the heads of the animals that they mimic. In the set of helmets that are currently on display at Paris' Centre Culturel Irlandais, there's a giraffe, a horse, a chameleon and a hammerhead shark, designed to give you a different perspective. Since there are many animals with eyes on either sides of their heads, this alone is enough to have you seeing the world in a whole new light.
