David McCracken Installs Infinite Stairway To Heaven In Australia

Part of the annual event known as Sculpture by the Sea, in Bondi, Australia, the sculpture that took everyone’s attention by storm belonged to the artist David McCracken who created an installation that looks like an endless stairway to heaven. However, in reality, the installation is nothing but a trick of optical illusion that the artist plays on the public to create a perception of surreal escape to the heaven with just a few steps of aluminum staircase. Check out the pictures of the sculpture, aptly named as Diminish and Ascend to experience the illusionary escape to the outer space yourself!
