Distorted Room

Distorted RoomVisitors peer into this full-size room through a viewing hole outside a window. The wall across from the hole is not parallel to the near wall, but recedes from it. The tiles on the floor, the window frames, the ceiling moldings, etc. are all proportioned so that the room appears to have square corners. As a result, people viewed in the room seem to change drastically in height as they walk from one side to the other.
