This post features optical illusions that use colour, space and shape to fool the eye. Each of the pieces will have your eyes send a signal to your brain that is interpreted to see things that really aren’t there or are not actually happening. Except that your eyes tell you they are – you can see it. Have fun with it.
Gallery of Illusions:
10. Black Squares
Can you see the small black circles in the middle of the white line ? Well, they are not really there.
9. Dog in the Dots
Some people see the dog others don’t…can you?
8. The Portrait in the Archway
Archway illusion of a sleeping dog, a man, a woman, a baby and profile from them all. So cool what the eye can be fooled into seeing.
7. White Squares
Can you see the small red circles in the middle of the white line ? Well, they are not really there.
6. Tesselated Colors in Motion
Stare at this picture.Watch the lines, shapes and colours and if you concentrate your attention you will notice that the image begins to move. There is actually no movement in this image. It moves because of the colors, which are processed dynamically by the eye and brain.
5. Shades of Green
4. The Moving Circle
3. The Herman Grid
2. Square in A Square
Hold your head still and use the mouse to move the page up and down. Or focus on the centre of the picture and slightly move your head. In each case you will see the centre square move, or jiggle, which of course is impossible.
1. The Pinwheel
