Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera.
It is a really simple, fun project to undertake with your students and it is something that we often experimented with when living in the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in Botswana.
