Erotic Silhouette Optical Illusion

This came to my attention via Kisrael.com. I know what some of you might be saying, I said the same thing when I first saw it. "How the heck does this classify itself as an optical illusion? For that answer you'll have to read the full article.

Ambiguous Rotation

This is very much like the Ferris Wheel optical illusion I posted previously, depending on how you look at her she will either be spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise. You don't believe that it is possible for your mind to see this image rotating any way but the way you see it now, do you?

One of the reasons that this is possible is that it is a silhouette and the very nature of a silhouette is ambiguous.

Try looking at the reflection and see if she reverses direction. I shift my focus to the side and can tell in my peripheral vision that she has changed direction, I then move my eyes back on the silhouette and walla she is rotating in the other direction.

What is even more amazing is that if you see her spinning clockwise then it is her right leg and arm that is up in the air, but if you see her spinning counter-clockwise then it is her left leg and arm that are up in the air.

My initial view of this illusion is that she is rotating counter-clockwise, but once I manage to see her spinning the opposite way it is hard to switch back. Which way does she appear to spin to you? Can you see her spin in either direction?

3D Art Illusion at Waterloo Station LONDON

An interesting 3D drawing by street artist Kurt Wenner, at the Waterloo Station in London. His artwork uses perspective tricks to make it "pop up" in 3D when viewed from a certain angle.

Duck or Rabbit Illusion?

This photo was taken by Flickr Artist Dropped_Stitch during a visit to the Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum in Branson, Missouri. The duck or rabbit reversible image has been around for over 100 years. This particular version came to my attention via Noticias de ilusionario.

What do you see a duck (looking left) or a rabbit (looking right). If you slide your mouse over the image the photo will rotate giving you a slightly differ perspective.

Jastrow's Cartoon (1899)
The interesting thing about this illusion is that it is frequently credited to Joseph Jastrow 1899.
Joseph Jastrow, an American psychologist, was the first to note this image in his work (see left). He used the duck-rabbit to make the point that perception is not just a product of the stimulus, but also of mental activity – that we see with the mind as well as the eye - source.

I obviously agree with Mr. Jastrow. You may have noticed that I frequently couch my words in setting up illusions in the hope that you will be more disposed to see the image from a particular perspective.

Original in Fliegende Blatter (1892)
The truth though is that while Jastrow used his image in 1899 it had appeared in print at least twice before both times in 1892.

Jastrow's 1899 cartoon version was based on one originally published in Harper’s Weekly (November 19, 1892, p. 1114). The Harper's cartoon, in turn, was based on one that had appeared earlier that year in Fliegende Blatter, a German humor magazine (October 23, 1892, p. 147) - source.

So what do you see in this image a duck or a rabbit? Which version is most effective for you?

Three Color Optical Illusion

Below is an interesting optical illusion that I modified to fit the color scheme here. At first glance you may see four colors: black, purple, green and blue. In fact beside the black there are only two colors.

Hurricane Katrina Optical Illusion

Hurricane Katrina was a nightmare for so many people along the Gulf coast including Marie of Mandeville, LA. Fortunately her house came through it just fine, but they did experience the brunt of a major storm.

Out of that storm this illusion was born. This is a picture of her husband standing against a large pine in their yard. She was kind enough to send this to me to share with y'all here.

So tell me why is this picture here on an illusion blog?

Sea Sickness Optical Illusion

I decided to try my hand at some illusions. The below image is the result. This is an anomalous motion illusion so please read the caution at the top of this page.

This is how I visualize the results of sea sickness in the optical illusion world. You can see the center spiraling down toward the deck and the outside splashing out after hitting. I know it doesn't sound nice, but that's life in the world of illusions.

What do you think? Do you see any motion in this image?

Update: Steve Higgins over at Omnibrain has dubbed this "The Purple Nurple Optical Illusion".

Color Contrast Optical Illusion

Below is another excellent example of White's illusion.

This is an interesting effect, below there is only one shade of purple. Let me be clear both shades of purple have an RGB value of R 198 G 173 B 231.

Although the purple on top seems to be darker than the purple below, they are actually identical.

As you can see, the purple triangles on top are mostly surrounded by blue, while the purple triangles below are surrounded by white. The color triangle's surroundings are changing their perceived color.

Shadow Illusions

Here is a series of shadow illusions by Tim Noble and Sue Webster. A 2003 press release describes them thusly,
Tim Noble and Sue Webster. Partners in both life and art, Tim Noble (1966) and Sue Webster (1967) explore the toxic influences of consumer culture through new modes of portraiture. Turning garbage into complex and visually arresting sculptural installations, Noble and Webster exploit, manipulate and transform base materials, often using self-portraiture to undermine the “celebrated” authorship of the artist.

Joe La Placa of Artnet had the following to say about the next two installations,
"Tim Noble and Sue Webster’s aptly titled exhibition, “Modern Art is Dead,” is an irreverent version of a shadowy Plato's Cave. Riding on the wake of their successful solo exhibition at P.S.1 in New York, the naughty couple continue to astound audiences with their transgressive alchemy of light, shadow -- and scraps of steel!

In the bawdily titled The Crack, we enter a dark room where an assemblage of welded steel scraps stands in the middle of the gallery like a lonely Giacometti figure.

A light source in front of the sculpture casts a halo of light -- and a crack-like shadow -- against the wall behind it.

Initially confounding (most tend to see the shadow as a positive space) we realize that the shadow is the negative space between two standing nude figures facing each other -- self-portraits by Noble and Webster.

The main work in the show, HE/SHE, is far more explicit -- there's no hiding in the shadowy crevices.

Two modernist-looking steel sculptures produce distinct silhouettes of the artists -- taking a piss! Could this be the artist’s commentary on modernism, a metaphorical marking of art turf?

I loved the skill needed to create these fascinating shadow self-portraits. They obviously are very passionate about their art. But they don't just do shadow illusions here is a word illusion very much like the one in this post.

Sun Pillar Optical Illusion

The below is the January 2nd, 2012 Astronomy Picture of the Day.

This is another amazing illusion of nature. There was no special filter used to create this effect. Have you ever seen this effect as the sun sets?

A Sun Pillar Over Maine

Credit & Copyright: Lucy Orloski

Explanation: Have you ever seen a sun pillar? When the air is cold and the Sun is rising or setting, falling ice crystals can reflect sunlight and create an unusual column of light. Ice sometimes forms flat, six-sided shaped crystals as it falls from high-level clouds. Air resistance causes these crystals to lie nearly flat much of the time as they flutter to the ground. Sunlight reflects off crystals that are properly aligned, creating the sun-pillar effect. In the above picture taken late last month, a sun-pillar reflects light from a Sun setting over Bangor, Maine, USA.

Chess Board Optical Illusion

Here is an excellent optical illusion photograph taken by Alain db of the Konica Minolta Users group on PBase.

This is an actual photograph not a digital/photoshop manipulation. The best that I can tell is the only thing done to this image was to convert it to Black & White. This photograph was awarded 1st place in Minolta Challenge #16 on PBase.

How do you think it was done?

Could a magnet be holding the King to the side of that raised block?

Still not sure how this photo was taken?

Alain was kind enough to provide an inside look in color with a slightly different lighting so you can tell without a doubt how it was accomplished.
