What we see isn’t always what we get. Perspective often determines whether we are the player or the one being played. Like a convincing drawing, Play the Fool relies on illusion to create the perception of mass and motion. A viewer’s vantage point makes all the difference between what he or she perceives is real and what is simply an optical manipulation.
