Read an Excerpt

It should come as no surprise that the topic of optical illusions is a rather elusive one. We experience optical illusions all the time, and our eyes deceive us. Distant scenes appear at, in that we may perceive everything beyond a certain distance to be in (or out) of focus. ings that are far away appear to be smaller than they really are. When we see with only one eye, depth perception is lost. “Realistic” photographs are two-dimensional representations of things that we know to be three-dimensional. Fish, ies, and fowl see differently than we do. Whose “reality” is right? All of them? None of them? Are they all optical illusions? Do the eyes “see” or does the brain? Obviously, both are required, but images are created in the brain with data received through the eyes. Artists creating intentionally deceptive illusions have many of these “tools” at their disposal.
