Do Now: What is an illusion?
Where have you encountered
an illusion before?

Notes:
Op art
A style of abstraction that
became popular in the 1960's.
Op art gives the illusion of
movement by the precise use
of line and pattern.
Born in 1931 is one
of Britain's best-known
artists. Since the
mid-1960's she
has been celebrated for
her distinctive, optically
vibrant paintings which
actively engage the
viewer's sensations.

Bridget Riley
Explain what you see? Do you have a sense
of movement? Why do you think you see
movement?
Bridget Riley is well known
for her black and white paintings
that present a variery of geometric forms.

in viewers as varied as seasickness and sky diving.

Fall, 1963
Stare at this image and explain what you see.
Why do you think this image is named "Fall"?
How does this image "trick" your eye? Are the tips converging in or bulging out?

Victor Vasarely
Vega-Nor, 1969
How does Vasarely effectively create an optical illusion of a sphere? What makes this piece so successful?
Victor Vasarely brought an awareness to his viewers about how the brain and eye work.
Through his use of color, shapes and placement we are tricked into seeing things that are not actually there.
Vonal Ksz
Does this image look like it has dimension? Why?
Vasarely claimed that form and color are inseperable. Looking at this image
do you think he is correct? Why?
Why is this piece so successful in creating a 3-D effect?
Notes:
ILLUSION:
A distortion of the senses,
revealing how the brain
normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation.
Fun Fact: Vision often dominates the other
senses.
Julian Beever
What is real? What is drawn?
Julian Beever is an English
chalk artist who has been
creating chalk drawings on the
pavement since the mid-90's
His drawings are created by using
a projection called anamorphosis and
appear to defy the laws of perspective.
