Today the Department of Awesome Anamorphic Artwork checks in on New York-based artist Aakash Nihalani (previously featured here), who continues to transform public spaces with his playful geometric tape installations.

"For however briefly, I am trying to offer people a chance to step into a different New York than they are used to seeing, and in turn, momentarily escape from routine schedules and lives. We all need the opportunity to see the city more playfully, as a world dominated by the interplay of very basic color and shape. I try to create a new space within the existing space of our everyday world for people to enter freely , and unexpectedly ‘disconnect’ from their reality."
