Portland residents were recently able to take a seat inside the Black Lodge's extradimensional red room from Twin Peaks, the David Lynch-helmed cult series that recently began its third season on Showtime. With a technique we've seen from the likes of celebrity street artist JR, sculptor Michael Murphy, and Dublin-based street art crew Truly, Chicago-based artist Nate Baranowski drew an anamorphic rendition of the room outside of Portland's famous Voodoo Doughnuts. Visitors could sit flat on the ground and appear to be lounging on the iconic set's cushy armchairs, as demonstrated in the video below.
