Story Behind The Art
In the building pictured here, anything goes. Lying, cheating and stealing are not only permitted, it is obligatory. This is The Academy, where intelligence cadets come to learn that illusion is reality, and reality can be turned into illusion. Life outside the academy (depicted in the upper half) is grounded and real. But inside the academy, falsehoods are made to appear true. Trainees will arrive as one person but leave as another. After many long, hard days of training, they will be able to create, understand and accept illusion. Here, the art of deception is turned into a religion.
