Özet

In the 20th century and especially in the 21st century, the theory and the concepts such as simulation', 'manipulation', 'illusion', 'secret' and 'reality' have been interpreted differently from old times in several disciplines especially in visual arts. Some misleading techniques within various methods and aesthetic rules have been applied in the way that they deal with these concepts which are contained in art dynamics serving as a language of visual expression. Though the performed images within 'Anamorphosis', its alias 'anamorphic illusion' technique which is one of the most interesting techniques, at first glance look like difficult and chaotic constructions to solve, they represent a fictitious image, space or surface with the purpose of deceiving and they also include visual effects, deformation, and utopia. In the anamorphic works that change as long as it moves and can only be resolved from a specific point and angle, they become a part of the spectator composition in order to discover the truth and meaning and thus interactive situations also occur.
