Description: Installation exhibit for the 2016 Big Omaha Conference.
Camouflage is the act of hiding or disguising the presence of a person, animal, or object by means of painting or coloring in order to blend in with its surroundings. “Can You See Me Cow?” is an exploration of techniques of razzle dazzle, a camouflage technique commonly employed by the military and automobile industries, and anamorphosis, a perspectival technique dating back to the 15th century. The installation creates surface distortion through optical illusions and hidden imagery while engaging the audience to become a part of the artificially created surroundings.
