If you’re an old time visitor to this site, there’s nothing new for you today – move along ;) This is just something I had to share with our newcomers; for them to see how astonishing and effective simplest of colour patterns can be. Not only does this static picture seem to move as your eyes move across it, it also gives an impression the lines of rounded rectangles it is composed of are slanted. If you look closer, you’ll soon realise all of the rounded rects are lined up perfectly, both horizontally and vertically.

Wavy Field Just Wont Stop Moving

    the effect is strongest if you scroll up and down a bit.

    Wow! Amazing!

    If you have a wheel mouse, or other means of smooth scrolling, the image will literally and undeniably undulate (3-D) as you move it up and down.

    It moves very little for me just looking at it- but if you mouse wheel up and down so the page scrolls a bit, then it moves TONS.

    Two monks were watching a flag flapping in the wind. One said to the other, “The flag is moving.”

    The other replied, “The wind is moving.”

    Huineng overheard this. He said, “Not the flag, not the wind; mind is moving.”

    (from “The Gateless Gate”, a collection of koans compiled by Wumen Hui-k’ai.)

    In this case, my eye is moving! Or is it, my head is spinning!?

    For added effect, scroll the browser window up and down.

    The illusion here is based entirely on shapes and values, but not color. I converted the image to black and white and the wavy illusion still held up because the interstitial red marks (dark marks in black and white) create the illusion of diagonal “bands” running NW to SE through the image. Eliminate the red marks and the illusion disappears entirely! This is a really good one.

    How about a daily illusion then
