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.

Light is Weightless Illusion

What is truly amazing is the fact that he was able to capture and weigh light with these scales.

This is a great effect caught in a photograph and to top it off this photo has not been manipulated in any way.

No strings, just light.

The artist said the following about how he captured this image.

"With the flash. The scale stood against a white wall with a dark plank approx. 30 cm. above it. The light reflected via the shiny copper on the wall above the scales. The difficulty was to find out how to hold the camera for a good effect. The third try was the best and this is it."
