Samara Golden Created an Upside-Down Room with Tables Glued to the Walls

A mesmerizing installation is currently being displayed in the CANADA Gallery in New York City that features an upside-down room that gives the illusion of shifted gravity. To create this magic trick, Samara Golden glued tables and chairs of differently designed rooms to each wall of the gallery space.

Upon walking into the upside-down room, people immediately lose their sense of space and balance. The different walls feature designs of an old-school country restaurant, a wedding reception, a bachelor's pad and a hotel lobby. Not only do the table-dangling walls make this space look confusing, but the differing designs mimic a trippy hallucination.

Each wall is decorated ornately down the carpet, center pieces and cutlery; however, there are purposeful imperfections as well to provide a reality check. The seamed mirrors and the thick lacquer holding the knives and forks down allow viewers to transition in and out of the optical illusion.
