You Have Just Entered The Twilight Zone

Zone1

 

Zone2

(Cue the eerie music at the beginning of The Twilight Zone)

You’re walking down a typical picturesque avenue in Paris, not a care in the world, when you turn a corner and there it is, a building that seems to sag and bend and ripple like a bowl of surreal jelly. Has someone slipped LSD in your Beaujolais? Or is this Paris trip nothing but an elaborate dream? Not to worry. Trompe l’oeil, the technique that fools the eye into seeing something that isn’t there, is a national hobby in France, and this building under construction has been draped in a mural that Salvador Dali would be proud of. Not recommended for those under the influence of mind-altering substances.
