Illusions

It’s not what you see, it’s how you see.

Seeing is believing, right? Well, not quite! Remember “the dress” that almost broke the internet, did you see blue and black or white and gold? What you saw was actually an illusion. The Fleet’s new Illusions Gallery bends your mind and shares how the brain processes information in ways that can often deceive us. You’ll see colors and shapes where there aren’t any, faces appear from the strangest places and the simplest images lead to the most surprising revelations. Step inside the world of visual illusions and discover that it is not what you see, but it’s how you see that truly matters.

Are the lines crooked or straight?

 

 

Is it a face or a vase?
