Sunday Morning Illusion
Today we bring you a meta illusion. Many illusions get your brain to misfire and have it interpret an image to be a real think when it’s actually an impossible representation.
Alexa Meade is a brilliant artist that gets your brain to believe it’s looking at an impossible abstraction when it’s actually looking at a real thing.
Don’t Get it? Check it out after the jump.
That’s right. This isn’t a painting of a man. It’s a photograph of a painted man.Even knowing that, can you force yourself to see it as anything but a painting? I can’t. Perhaps my mind is just feeble.
Love this woman’s work… the pics of her with her subjects just freak out my mind 🙂
Absolutely wonderful! Even the photo of her shooting the photo… I still see a ‘painting’. She’s amazing.
I have a severe case of cognitive dissonance! Such a fantastic post. I’m sharing this all over the place. Thanks, Ryan!
My head asplode.
That is completely amazing. I wonder if there’s a fair amount of trial and error to make the illusion as compelling as it is, or if she works out all of the technical details in advance?
Also, her work reminded me of this awesome dude: http://v1kram.posterous.com/liu-bolinthe-invisible-man
