The majority has decided in favor of our newly self-hosted video player. The only flaw I noticed, is how the player is last thing to load when you open our website. This may confuse some newcomers, but I think we can live with it. Now something about our LOGO: as you know, Moillusions.com stands for Mighty Optical Illusions, our official title. I’ve been contemplating about possibility to change our beloved logo, but somehow nothing revolutionary came to my mind. This is why I invite ALL OF YOU to submit your ideas, and help us form a whole new logo, to serve us in years to come. Think you’re up to the challenge? Let’s see some of your ideas!
About the illusion, well it was submitted by Christian Hendrich, who took some photos of the 1997 exhibition called Documenta X, and decided to share them with us. The installment was set in Museum of Modern Art in Germany, and the original author behind it is Matthew Ngui. When you see the chair from room’s entrance, it seems at first there is nothing wrong with it. A desire may come to you, to sit and relax for a minute. But when you approach it, or move around the room, true nature of the chair reveals itself. I recall we had something very similar before. Marvell Superhero is one of the examples, but I think that Gillian Brown’s Constructed Photographs still deserve the golden medal.
