That’s a fancy title for a pretty simple blog post. Sometimes somebody makes a picture that’s just so cool and clever I have to tell others about it. That’s the case with this image by artist Stephen Doyle. He created an anamorphic projection—a physical construction that when viewed in the ideal perspective takes the shape of another object. In this case, Doyle used simple blue tape to create a huge word—Grit—that served to illustrate a concept in a story about an educational program for the New York Times. When viewed just right, Doyle’s long stripes of tape perfectly spell out the word. It’s one of those things that’s so simple and so creative it’s inspiring.
