This paper presents novel catoptric anamorphic sculptures made possible by the development of bespoke software. The authors detail the production of a catoptric anamorphic sculpture involving a concave mirror and examine the audience’s experience. The reflections the mirror creates are described as being ‘holographic’. This effect is known as a ‘real image’ and only occurs using a concave mirror. Through interviews with participants, the paper reports on the audience’s experience of the real image. This new approach to anamorphic sculptures extends past work dating back many centuries. The authors present the digital tools they have developed to facilitate anamorphic artistic production and extend the limits of what has been achieved in the past. They end with an outline of future work, including glass lenses, and propose using video projection mapping.
