Ricky Jay and Errol Morris in The Ames room optical Illusion (YT).

An Ames room is a distorted room that is used to create an optical illusion. An Ames room is constructed so that from the front it appears to be an ordinary cubic-shaped room, with a back wall and two side walls parallel to each other and perpendicular to the horizontally level floor and ceiling. However, this is a trick of perspective and the true shape of the room is trapezoidal: the walls are slanted and the ceiling and floor are at an incline, and the right corner is much closer to the front-positioned observer than the left corner (or vice versa)

Interesting stuff.
The Ames Room is fascinating and I love the David Blaine Spoof site.

I'm involved in magic and illusions and do think that David Blaine does a discredit to real performers, with his use of camera tricks and stooges, to create a TV show.
