Take A White Wall,

some black tape,

 and the mind of Darel Carey, and you’ll quickly lose your sense of the room’s actual dimensions, your confused eyes tripping over illusions of ridges and voids that aren’t really there, using nothing but roll after roll of black electrical tape, 

Carey transforms ordinary spaces into disorienting, graphic landscapes that seem to shift as you look at them,

  the work may look mathematical in nature, 

 but Carey tells New Element Art that his work is "mostly organic and freestyle, and the only mathematics involved is naturally applied, I like it when people say they lose their orientation in the space,because it lets me know that my dimensional lines are doing their job and giving the mind and eye something to ponder",

below the time lapse videos are fascinating in their own right as Carey “bends space”

 simply by changing the direction of the tape as well as altering its width to produce the illusion of topography on smooth, flat surfaces,

 what a great effects, all just done with a piece of tape.
