Hi guys just thought I'd show you some Star Wars related illusions I've been working on. Got some featured recently on CNN and in Wired. Hope you like them:

Image

Vader's Tie Fighter

Done in an origami style, I spray-painted on several layers of cling-film to form the illusion in a derelict dye works in Leeds

Image

X-Wing

Like the Tie Fighter, done on cling film in the same derelict dye works.

Image

Antigravitational Force

Illusion of a stormtrooper in water wings and ducky swim ring I painted in the corner of my studio. This is what happened when I watched all the Star Wars films back to back with Gravity.

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys :D Below are a couple of links to clips showing the layout of my illusions with parts of the image painted on separate layers of clingfilm and some parts on the floor.
