The Art House, Drury Lane, Wakefield, West Yorkshire
Entitled Play On (2007) by Robert Dawson
It comprises approximately 2,500 tiles and through seven discrete panels spans 28 metres, almost covering the upper area of the building’s façade.

As with much of his work, the optical illusions have multi- stability, the images move inwards and outwards, being visually neither stable nor totally unstable.
