The Never Ending Staircase

<< Back to blog

As part of the 2013 Sculpture by the Sea that takes place in Bondi, Australia, this quite unbelievable trick on the eye was created by artist David McCracken and is entitled Diminish and Ascend.

The staircase is constructed from welded aluminium and given the angle of the viewer appears to disappear into the distance tricking the eye into thinking the staircase actually continues forever.
