"I Am Zaha"

On a brick wall near the Zaha Hadid Design Gallery in London's Clerkenwell district, tile and mosaic company Domus has crafted a likeness of Dame Zaha Hadid. But there is a trick to the installation by artist Greg Shapter—it is a three-dimensional, one-point-perspective piece that is best seen from an "X" stenciled onto the sidewalk nearby. As Shapter puts it: "You have to make an effort to find the best place to stand and are rewarded when you have found it."

"I Am Zaha" can be seen on the corner of Great Sutton Street and Goswell Road until the end of the year.
