New Zealand based musician and artist, Jamie Harkins, has transformed the beach into his canvas of art featuring 3D-like images made using the creative process of anamorphosis. Having people pose with his works further intensifies the optical illusion effect it provokes. Harkins explained his artistic motivation to The New Zealand Herald, “We’ve seen other people doing stuff on beaches, but it’s always been geometric, flat shapes, like a pattern, so we thought we’d get into the whole 3D thing. And I kind of like the fact that it disappears at the end of the day when the tide comes in. It makes it impermanent.”
