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.

Acrobats in Optical Illusions

While cruising the internet I came across the Acrobats Illusion Video below, this mention of acrobats and illusions reminded me of the below painting by Rob Gonsalves. He has an excellent eye for transitioning from the normal to the surreal.

Les Kiriki Acrobates Japonais is an excellent optical illusion video directed by Segundo de Chomon in 1907.
According to the IMDB the plot is "A troupe of Japanese acrobats perform various stunts in front of the camera." They further state that Segundo "Joined Pathe Laboratories in 1901 where he specialized in adding color to film."
Yes this was created and hand colored in 1907.
