Ferruccio Laviani's latest art installation plays with a viewer's perception and celebrates the visual impact of overlapping geometric shapes.

In a representation of the "relationships between scale and proportion," the artist has created a room adorned with multi-colored geometric shapes, pillars and unusually placed lighting and decorations. While some of the hanging fixtures remain above the average human's height, others hang quite low, allowing the artist to make a statement on proportion and commonly used design techniques. This geometric art installation certainly takes after its name -- "Reality or Illusion" -- by blurring the lines between common design practices and those that are out of the norm.

This art installation will appeal to design-conscious adults as well as children, thanks to its playful mix of vivid colors and exaggerated shapes.
