I think it moved

Unfortunately, it's made out of square tubing. The size difference due to perspective throws it off. If they had a brake, they could have made their own pieces and gotten the sizes right.

I wonder how long it took them to position the piece so that it would give the illusion of being a concentric piece.

The top piece is just a flat bar across. The angle makes it seem like it is the side of the bottom bar. There’s a reason the guys hand doesn’t cross over it at all (he’s very careful not to).

Here’s a video of a guy making one, as there are so many people with spontaneous bleeding of the eyes after watching this one. It’s basically not a connected shape at all, it needs to be looked at from a specific angle to make it look like a triangle… Penrose Triangle real life
u/AnotherDeadFoxezz Feb 02 '23
sorry to ruin the blackmagic fun but, this illusion is called a "penrose triangle" or "impossible triangle" According to Wiktionary, the Penrose triangle is defined as: “An optical illusion depicting an impossible solid object made of three straight beams of the square cross-section which meet pairwise at right angles at the vertices of the triangle they form.”

There’s a reason they don’t glide the camera slowly to the left.
