While this effect is best viewed in video form, the effect of an Ames Room can be used in art pieces by depicting rooms that appear normal but twist our perception of scale. As for video applications, its clear that using the Ames Room is a powerful tool that offers a startlingly simple solution to the problem of relative scale. I was surprised to see that this optical illusion has such commercial applications in movie production, and I can easily see how I could construct an Ames room of my own if I ever needed to create media that could twist the viewers perception of position and gravity.
