Art of Optical Ilusion

Have you ever heard of Optical Illusion?

Optical Illusion is also known as the visual illusion. Illusion occurs when we observe things, our brain perceive images that are different from the reality. When our eyes are “illusioned”, they send the wrong information to the brain that is different from the actual thing. There are three different kinds of optical illusions. literal optical illusion, physiological illusion, and cognitive illusions.

Literal optical illusion

Literal optical illusions create images that are different from the objects that make them.

How many horses do you see?

Crucification

The Face of God

Hidden Men

Physiological illusion

Physiological illusion occurs when our brain and eyes are constantly exposed to a repeating pattern, such as color, brightness, and movement.

Are these actually moving?

How many Black Dots?

Cognitive Illusions

Cognitive illusions occur when our brain and eyes make unconscious inferences, which is also known as “mind games”.

There are different kinds of cognitive illusions, such as depth and motion perception, color and brightness constancy, and object constancy. However, out of everything, my favorite is perceptual organization. In perceptual organization, the images can be different depending on how the viewer views the image.

Liar or man’s face?

Duck or Rabbit?Old Lady or Young Woman?

Saxophone player or woman’s face?

Two men or vase?
