Trick of Perspective


We were at the University of Western Australia recently and noticed this unusual sculpture. If you stand in the right place, it pops into  a 3D portrait of Sir John Winthrop Hackett (1848-1916).

He was a man of many talents – newspaper owner/editor, politician and first Chancellor of the uni in 1913. He was ahead of his time in believing that Western Australia should have a university and that women should have the vote. The message is that, “Impossible is just a perspective”.
