Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Bridge Optical Illusion

In 2002 Professor Lastra of the University of North Carolina was invited to speak at SIBGRAPI, the Brazilian graphics conference, in Fortaleza. While there he photographed this bridge which lead to the Cultural Center. At first glance this seemed like an extremely long foot bridge. He was kind enough to allow me to use these two pictures he took.
