Challenging Perspective

Post by uuglypher » Wed Jan 03, 2018 4:37 pm

Challenging Perspective

Almost every spatial illusion involves challenging conventional perspective. I say “Almost every...” because although I cannot think of an exception to my premise, there just might be one...or some...?)

Here is an illusion I constructed in 2D- the single large image - and then compounded - hoping to confound rational resolution even further - by rendering the 2D illusion within a 3D environment for viewing by stereopsis. The stereo quad set is arranged with the top pair for parallel gaze and the bottom pair for crossed gaze (all 3D perceptions also being illusory)

Have fun with the illusions and, if so inclined, disputing my premises of this presentation...

If not familiar with viewing stereo image pairs, see my tutorial on viewing 3D image pairs in the Tutorial Section. Image

I know you're aware I have trouble seeing the stereo pairs, but i wanted to let you know what an intriguing image you've created. It is confounding to look at even without the stereo effect. My eyes can't figure out where to begin to decipher it. Interesting.

Hi, Min,
I’m glad you viewed the single 2D illusion. Having long been an admirer of M.E.Escher’s works, I constructed the 2D illusion inspired by and admittedly derivative of Escher’s incredible illusory art.
Then, to add illusion to illusion, I performed 2D-to-3D conversion using the monocular depth cues of the original 2D image to build on the fact that every “3D” image we see is, in fact, an illusion constructed by our brain from two 2D retinal images.

I am hoping that those able to view the “stereo quad” with either of the two methods of accomplishing stereopsis ( parallel gaze or crossed gaze) will appreciate the illusion of my original 2D illusion through the added illusion of 3D conversion... and will let me know their opinions of the effect.

Thanks, Min, for looking and commenting.

Best regards,
Dave
