Anamorphic parking garage signage

The positive response to my recent anamorphic Pac-Man post led me to dig up this oldie-but-goodie from Boing Boing. This “UP” signage is only one of several anamorphic signs from The Eureka Tower Carpark in Melbourne, Australia. The anamorphic projections, designed by Axel Peemöller, only read properly when viewed from the correct angle.

    You should check on these photographers, which do larger scale work: Georges Rousse and Gordon Matta-Clark. These guys do all the hard work, and their art is only the final photograph from the right angle.
