Had so much trouble writing this post. For some reason the image below just won’t stop moving. It makes my head hurt. Much. And when I tell you its not even an animated GIF, how would you explain this! I’ve read somewhere on web that it has something to do with your eyes’ microsaccades, the small, jerk-like, involuntary eye movements we all experience but usually don’t notice. I just hope I don’t give someone a seizure with this one ;D Oh, and high apologizes for lack of updates last few days. I got trapped in another project, but it’s all hush-hush for now. Don’t worry, you’ll be informed when the right time comes!

    stare at something really still and the effect will go away. And stop you from getting a headache. Unless you happen to be staring at the sun.

  • PDogB

    Yeah, baby! Rock on!

    • :-D

      if u stare at the middle of the illusion it looks like it’s falling away

    This isn’t a direct response to this pic. Looking for an illusion I saw many years ago. Picture like you’re looking out you window at another building. Look into the telescope in front of your window and see silloette of undressing lady in window across the way. Anyone seen it?

    Holy crap…

  • whoa

    sweet….i don’t know if it’s just me or what but if you stare at the center for awhile the circle starts to get bigger. but i didn’t get a headache. XD

    I wonder why this illusion doesn’t work as well if you print the image out (it work’s, but not as well). Doest it have to have a super-high resolution of modern computer screens? Or is it to do with illumination that a computer screen has?

  • Jason Rogalski

    This is amazing. Do you know who made it? Does it have a name? I want to understand why this is happening to my vision. WOW! Thank you!

    This is (or used to be?) called a moiré pattern. When I was in Junior High school in the 60s there was a traveling exhibit of art called “The Responsive Eye” my father and I went to see which had a lot of stuff like this. The big difference back then was that it was all in black and white; I suspect color moiré is a more recent phenomenon.

    Very good.

    Ive noticed for some reason, if you squint a bit it stops all its motion.

  • bob

    very cool

  • guemes bill

  • guemes bill

    Now, this takes me back a few years…very cool! Maybe but it wasn’t today…..

  • OldDozen

    Just want to say I have followed your site for some time and I think it is brilliant. Thank you very much for your efforts.

  • Hypersapien

    Yeah. If I focus on the center, the jerky movements definitely slow down, although they don’t stop completely, and I can kind of see my point of focus still involuntarily drifting a bit.

  • Paul

    If you relax your eyes sufficiently, the motion ceases. So I agree the illusion is likely to do with eye motions.

  • David Worl

    Fantastic! Where can I buy it?

  • secret

    try to half close your eyes and look

  • WinterCrystal

    Oh my god. It is cool

  • Bobbie
