Ooooh, Take Me Out to the Ball Game Fence

March 25, 2011

Optical illusion lovers, there’s a delightful surprise behind Seattle’s Safeco Field ballpark.

If you’re beside the chain link fence, it looks like someone randomly shoved ping pong balls into spaces. But seen from a distance, the fence merges into an ingenious black and white benday mural. Be ready to do a screeching U-turn like I did (or at least a serious double-take!)

I’d love to know who created the mural. Anyone have info on this?

    That is really cool! Love how it looks at different angles. Are we going to celebrate smoke and mirrors day together tomorrow?
