Optical Illusions

A special kind of magic.

They intrigue, puzzle, mystify and deceive.

When we experience an illusion, our brain is immediately challenged to make sense of it. Our brains are easily tricked because it is not aware it is taking in an illusion. It is calculating everything based on past references and making assumptions the same history and principles still apply.

It is a matter of survival.





I have been studying the psychology used in magic as well as the fun and puzzling deception used in optical illusions that are designed to fully trick your brain.
