Graduate Studies Anamorphic Mural at Ryerson University

Mural Routes Member(s): Pam Lostracco

The mural features 6 winning poems written by students about campus life at Ryerson University. In the hallway, the main wall is divided into a geometric pattern of squares. A selection of blue and yellow tones match Ryerson’s brand colours. The colours create a gradient that lifts upwards from darker blues on the lower left to brighter yellows on the upper right. It creates a positive and forward movement that brightens up the long hallway. At the end of the hall, there’s an anamorphic illusion of the word GRAD. Close-up, the G and D look stretched out on the side walls. However, when you stand further back, there’s 1 specific vantage point where all the letters perfectly align.
