Hiding in plain sight, Point of View employs the “Thatcher Effect,” an optical illusion that highlights how easily the brain can incorrectly process visual information. Initially, only the orientation of the billboard seems conspicuous. The illusion is revealed when a viewer shifts their perspective, and is able to detect the distortions present in the inverted faces.
