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.

Salt Mine Fractal

Sci-Art Bloggers Friday Favorites

Mid-August I was hunting around the web for possible web sites to invite to join Sci-Art Bloggers when I came across Hexposure, a photoblog that has great potential. The only hitch was it was only updated once every month or so. While I was looking over the nice selection of pics I noticed this image of a salt mine. Very cool, another example of a naturally occurring fractal.

About a week later the below image was the Fractal of the Day. Maybe it's just me but I saw a similarity between these to images.

Well this is early in the formation of the Sci-Art bloggers. A group that frequently covers that area where art and science overlap.

Below are some postings from our members that I picked for our eighth Friday Favorites set.


Bibi's Box "Cookies!"
Inner_Muse "Bloomong"
She Dreams in Digital "What's Hip?"
What Is It? "This Weeks Photos"
Artsy Science "Changes..."
The Daily Poligraf "Self-server"

As our group grows I will only put posts here that are submitted by the members. But until then enjoy some fascinating posts for this week.
