  1. Nice one, it made hit replay thrice to see if I could catch clues the real size of things :) . I was almost expecting something would happen to the table and the white door/cabonet on the right

  2. Well, I guess that’s how they filmed “The Hobbit” too. Very nice work! :-)

    Thanks for this one, Richard, it’s particularly clever and fun :D I always enjoy these forced perspective images and videos and this is delightful :D Thanks again :)

    Very good. Simple, but comnplicated! Watched it three times.

  6. George Munro says:

    Great work as usual!!

    If it seems like I’m getting smaller… it’s because I’m slowly moving further away…

  8. Yay! Made me feel like Alice in Wonderland

    “one last time… these are small… but the ones out there are faaar away”

    Brilliant. I had to watch it a couple time as well in order to see the visual cues.

    How was that done? Particularly, how could Richard be in the room one minute, go out and then just put his hand in to take something tiny out? I did notice that the left wall bends over to the right. Other than that, I’m pretty clueless.

  12. Frank says:

    Nice work Richard. You make an excellent point.

    Reblogged this on WrAnTz and commented:
    Every week Richard sets my mind clanking and grinding away in amazement. I can’t even believe my own eyes anymore. Here is his latest.
    Thanks Richard

    It’s pretty good. But there are some cues from lack of focus on the nearby objects. This would work better if the overall quality of the video weren’t so good. Still, I quite enjoyed it (and did not pick up on the painting initially).

    I couldn’t watch it at work, but given the title of the post and screenshot of the video, I realised what it was all about and pretty much guessed everything correctly even before watching the whole video.

    I def made a few assumptions there! Amazing :)

    smiles, ta!

    Smiles.

    I try not to assume anything. When I do, it usually ends up with me making an ass out of u and me

    I spotted the doll house chair and the over-sized cup and saucer before starting the video. I suspected the other cup and saucer of being tiny, but I was wrong and the portrait was a total surprise. Nice job.

    At the end it just made me want to find more stuff in the picture. It’s funny when every step is surprising.

  22. […] This is another one that I saw courtesy of a retween from someone and then followed up.  It took me to the site of Richard Wiseman, that contains a number of very well done videos that challenge your views of the world – this is a particularly nice optical illusion.  See it here: http://richardwiseman.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/do-you-make-assumptions/ […]
