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.

Lego Explorers Optical Illusion

The below is a fascinating photo created by Max Giani. This is an actual photograph not a digitally manipulated image. Can you tell me how it was done?

The photo was setup using 4 parts. Real lego people, a real Penrose triangle, a flat 2-d black, white and grey track and a blue background.

I made it 6 or 7 years ago for an exam (I study architecture).
