Digital projection artist and self-proclaimed master of illusion Skertzò  transformed a tunnel in Lyon last weekend into a shapeshifting wonderland, for the annual Festival of Lights (Fête des Lumières Lyon).

The Tunnel de la Croix Rousse was given over to the artist for the four day festival celebrating and honouring the Virign Mary. Skertzò created different digital projections called Anamorphosis, which  transformed the tunnel into a variety of landscapes including a woodland and a giant version of the town of Croix Rousse. The artist played with scale, creating illusions that made visitors feel both bigger and smaller than real life as they passed through the tunnel, helping them forget themselves and their surroundings for one moment.
