Optical Illusion Fun

Anamorphoscopes, Slant Art and Other Eye-Ticklers

“The brain abhors ambiguity, yet we are curiously attracted to it.  Many famous visual illusions exploit ambiguity to titillate the senses. Resolving uncertainties creates a pleasant jolt in your brain, similar to the one you experience in the ‘Eureka!’ moment of solving a problem….” Scientific American article – “Ambiguities and Perception”
