This study aspires to call attention to differences in perception of space through the means of anamorphosis and painting spatially. Perspectival distortion is also part of this study, as it plays a role in perception of space. Discrepancy. is a personal quest to be able to experience and access the spaces that are constructed in my 2D paintings in three dimensions. What are the architectural implications of a space being presented as having discrepancies in proportion, scale, planar slope, and location? In order to answer this question, I have devised a method which includes 2D drawings, projection mapping, 2D full scale templates, and full scale spatial painting. The resulting painting is immersive, distorted, animated. It is unstable due to the treatment of the line, and there is a duality achieved in painting a duplicate on top of the existing. The space appears to be unstable overall, as the painted space creates a discrepancy of reality. The architectural relevance lies in the freehand line type chosen for the preliminary drawings which mimic construction documents in this methodology. The gap created from translating 2D drawn information to 3D is embraced in this project. The 2D drawn information is not drawn as an orthographic projection to mimic the space, but rather, it is drawn in a freehand perspective type in order to be more true to perception and experience. No single person perceives space in the same way, as this project would never be the exact same if another person were the observer/drawer/painter.
