Photo Illusions are creative ways to confuse your mind and create false perception of things that don't exist. There are tons of funny photo illusions out there ranging from exploiting false perspective (eg. catching sun in hands during sunset, holding the tower of Pisa etc.) to paintings on walls making the impression that there is no wall but rather we see what is inside the building. 

The mentioned paintings are actually called "trompe l'oeil", which comes from French and means "deceive the eye". You might have seen such murals fooling us into seeing 3D scenes which are painted on a regular flat wall. It's funny how we like to be tricked.

  •  Illusions date back a long time. The ancient Greeks used illusions. Probably not by “moving” cars, though.



_____________________________________________________________________
  •  In 350 BCE, Aristotle said, “Our senses can be trusted, but they can be easily fooled.” The philosopher used a waterfall to prove his point.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  Scientists started to seriously study illusions in the 1800s. They were the first to theorize how the eyes can trick the mind.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  The scientists studied perception, among other things.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  Our brain makes judgments about size using adjacent objects.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  Other scientists during this time used lines to show how our brain perceives, or misperceives, images.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  The brain uses trusted lines to gauge perspective and distance.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  In the late 1800s, Hermann von Helmholtz showed the world that we can look at images and misunderstand what we see.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  Hermann von Helmholtz proved that our perception can be manipulated.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  “Filled space” is a term scientists use to hypothesize how our brains estimate perceived information. . .incorrectly.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  The brain is constantly trying to make sense of information.


_____________________________________________________________________
  •  Sometimes, the brain interprets information incorrectly. As with an illusion.
