Perceptual Illusion: Can You Find A Cat?
March 12, 2019 16:28 By Fabiosa
Have you ever wondered why we see faces or silhouettes where they shouldn’t be seen? Sometime, we may imagine that something is hiding in the shadows, in the branches of trees, in a pile of stones, or in the water. This is actually not a big deal. This phenomenon is called perceptual illusion.
The word “illusion” comes from the Latin illudere, which means a mistake. In the same way, our brain mistakenly misinterprets reality, creating fantastic images that really aren’t there. However, some artists, borrowing the knowledge of perceptual illusion phenomenon, create completely unique paintings.
Look at the work of such an artist below. Can you find a cat here?
What about this picture? What else do you see here besides the obvious image of a man?
An interesting fact about the perceptual illusions: they can be based not only on visual but also on sound and even taste images. Several factors affect the appearance of illusions. Although scientists don’t consider these phenomena to be something abnormal, we tend to think this is the result of reverie, distinct to creative people. As a result of constant dreaming, some of the artists create captivating works.
