     Scott Kim is well known for his artistic creation of ambigrams. Ambigrams can be letters, words, or numbers that are ambiguous. Some ambigrams are mirror reversible, others can be read inverted, others have two meanings hidden in the word.

     He is the author of two books and a CD Rom on ambigrams.

     Kim works now as a freelance designer of puzzles, and also performs mathematical dance routines of his own design.

     "True/False" and "Scott Kim/Inversions" are both examples of words that have two separate meanings cleverly embedded within them. In "True/False" the word true can be seen in red. 

     "Scott Kim/Inversions" can be read left to right to reveal the artist's name -- Scott Kim. If you invert the letters it reads "Inversions."

     The three examples above are all examples of inversions, where the word or name can be read both right-side up or upside down.
