If you’re familiar with the computer game called Portal, then you know just how complex the imaginary world filled with teleportation portals can be. That’s why it’s such a perfect match for the world M.C. Escher imagined, particularly his famous  Relativity piece. While we have featured a lot of artist interpretations on this classic artwork, given […]

There’s a great chance you’ve already seen something similar, or at least have a vague idea who Maurits Cornelis Escher was. In case you you haven’t, he was the famous Dutch graphic artist, most known for his impossible structures (Ascending and Descending, Relativity…) and various tessellations. Today’s article features one of the animated variations of […]

Let me tell you one thing – when you receive exactly the same email from dozen of multiple sources, it means there’s definitely something going on. Luckily nothing bad happened, and it was just another video illusion submission. One I couldn’t ignore, unfortunately.

Never Ending Staircase 1 Optical Illusion

Neil Rhodes contacted me recently, and suggested we feature some of his realistic photo-shopped optical illusions. As you see, the theme is nothing we haven’t already seen, but the results Neil accomplished speak for themselves. Impossible structures are often posted to this blog, and they usually appear in two separate forms: either as real camera […]
