A gravity defying painting from the Dutch in 1953, an abstract, art school structure in Singapore and a vortex-shaped bridge/bar, all bend reality as people know it. Reality is only an idea of how people view the world and understand how the world works. It is the concept that people use to keep their minds in check with their everyday lives. However, through art, artists express their own sense of reality and show through creativity and hard work, a dream or idea can become reality. M.C Escher’s art piece, Relativity, shows an example of an everyday use, stairs, and reverses the concept of walking up and down them to one that breaks the laws of nature. The Green Roof Nanyang Art School is a structure that shows the viewer that nature and architecture can blend together to make a masterpiece that is the philosophy of the school, art and creativity. Vito Acconci’s Moore Island Bridge changes the natural perspective of a land based island into a metal based one that give pedestrians a chance to experience art by walking through it. Separated, each artwork has its own unique qualities but together, forms an idea that reality is only how people see it and through the artist’s work, people are able to see it in a different perspective.
