Artist 'INSA' installed a colorful swirl on the floor on an old Roman warehouse. For many artists, color can be a powerful tool for playing with space. This unique installation uses different shades to create the illusion of falling.

The installation was designed for the Outdoor Festival in Rome. The exhibit consists of a colorful swirl placed in the center of a warehouse floor. The 'whirl' spans from one side of the room to the other, creating the illusion that the floor is collapsing in on itself. The swirling floor is mirrored by a skull illustration that reflects the same color pattern. The skull is bathed in light, which enhances the vibrancy of the hues used.

The mind-bending installation demonstrates how something as simple as color can be used to challenge a viewer's perception of space.
