I hate to write this, but "You'll never believe what happens next!"
Speaking of anamorphosis, check out French artist Bernard Pras' nutty room-sized sculpture below. Pras practices the cylinder-free variant of anamorphosis, and the results have to be seen to be believed:
So how the heck did Pras (who's been producing anamorphosis-based art since the mid-90s) create that coherent, Dalí-esque portrait out of such an assemblage of random objects? A making-of video looking at some of his earlier pieces reveals his technique. (Hint: It involves computers.)
For a man employing technology in his art so heavily his personal website is, alas, Flash-riddled. But you can see more of his work there.
