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.

The Impossible Cube, Crate or Box

Sometimes the impossible is possible. I have seen this cube done in many ways. The drawing is easy but I have seen this crate actually constructed. The one of real wood is very real looking, how was it done? Actually constructed? or a photoshop creation?

The box can be constructed as long as it is viewed from the proper angle. Continue further down the page for a few different real physical constructs of this illusion. The Lady holding the box below I found on Amazing Art.

Below is Jerry Andrus demonstrating his construction of the impossible crate and exposing how he accomplished this illusion. (Found on Amos Storkey's page)

Click on the below image to view a larger movie of this construct (approx. 1 meg). Found on Natis' site.
