    Question Help: Making Mosaic shape from polaroid

    Good morning to all
    I have a question, i saw somewhere in a video (Some romance/polariod advertisement) if i am correct.
    This photographer hangs multiple polariods from strings attached to the ceiling, at different heights and distance in between each.
    Only when view from an certain angle, the pictures will form into a shape (heart shape for example), but when view from all other angles, it will just look like some random hanging photos.

    There are certain art exhibits also makes use of hanging objects which forms into a desire shape when view from a certain angle. i am not sure how to explain and i am unable to find a image to explains what i am talking here.

    So i am hoping some clubsnapper will know what i am talking about, and guide me to a video or the art "name" so i can do research.

    Thanks in advance

    There is nothing to it or should I say it just take imagination and visualising skills to do
    this kind of picture including the viewing angle.Maurizio Galimberti is the Italian photo artist
    who started it all in 1995 and others just give it a different twist.

    It will be cheaper if you use software like Pixisnap and it's free than real polaroid camera
    unless you really want to suffer for your art

    So the actual activity is called installation art.

    I think 'installation art' refers more to the medium as it's a rather general term. I've seen this style being referred to as 'perspective art' or 'forced perspective __(insert medium)___'.
    E.g, If it's something rendered in a physical space, like what you mentioned about hanging polaroids, I'd refer to it as a 'forced perspective installation', or 'forced perspective photography installation' to be precise. Note that it wouldn't be inaccurate to refer to it as 'installation art' as well, it's just less specific. I'm no art expert, just my thoughts on what I'd call it.

    Example: Forced perspective wall art/design/signage:
