Moving House?

29 Oct

Mid-term  view of turning house

Leaving the illusion, the inside-out structure

These days,  moving house is quite a common experience. Packing cases are carefully filled, items lovingly stored: or ruthlessly discarded: in the process.  Par for the course.

But the ‘Moving House’ of this title is a house of a different colour.

Peering out of a car in a suburban road of outer Sydney, those unfamiliar may well wonder what’s going on.

As they speed across this major intersection,  do they find themselves suddenly staring?  At what? A mirage?  No: a turning house!!

Believe me, the first view of the house  turns with you as you arc around it to the left in a sweeping curve.

The  visual cues are overwhelming!

Let me reveal: it is , of course,  a mere  optical illusion: a trick of the eye.  But one so stunningly successful that an unaware visitor may well ponder : ‘Am I seeing things?’
