>What is trompe l'oeil?

Well, trompe l'oeil is part of a long history of artistic illusionism. But it was done, at least within painting, with obvious materials. Technology eludes people in bigger ways. I mean, staring at a Bavarian ceiling painting, I marvel at the technique, and what was accomplished with the materials, but I am not distracted by their mystery.
