French artist Benedetto Bufalino has applied his creativity and humor to his latest work, entitled "La Table de Pique Nique," an oversized picnic table installed in Saint-Exupery in Colomiers, France. The table, about as tall as a grown man, creates an optical illusion when seen from afar—the structure’s comically large, albeit proportionally correct, size toys with onlookers’ sense of perception. Those who choose to sit on one of the benches find themselves eye level with the surface of the table, while those who choose to bask on the tabletop find that the space is adequate for sitting, lying, and possibly throwing a dance party. Big enough for a real American lunch, Bufalino's table takes an ordinary object and makes it strangely new again.
