Optical Illusions

Optical illusions are amazing! I have recently been exploring the Wonderful World of Optical Illusions, and here are a few of my favorites:

The Spinning Dancer

Which way is she turning? Clockwise or counter-clockwise?

I guess we’ll never know…

The Café Wall

This is one you may have seen before. It consists of stacked black and white squares that create the illusion of curved lines in between them.the-cafe-wall-illusion-expplained.jpg

Here is a site where you can check it out: http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/ang-cafewall/

The Necker Cube

The Necker cube is actually just a line drawing of a cube

The cool thing about this is that you can view it one of two waysuntitled

Now for the grand finale of all this cube business:

INTRODUCING… THE IMPOSSIBLE CUBE! Just look at it. I’ll say no more.

 

BONUS:

shake your head

This one also works if you relax your eyes or step back

 

****The featured image is also (surprise surprise) an optical illusion. That image is not moving or animated. It is a still picture. MIND=BLOWN
