Tessellations frequently appeared in the art of M. C. Escher, and can be seen throughout history – from ancient architecture, to modern art. In short, a tessellation is a collection of figures that are able to fill the surface with no overlaps and no gaps. Best example of what I’m talking about can be seen in this post. However, today’s tessellation places another interesting effect in center of our attention . Observe the image below, move your eyes all over it, and you should see the tiles have started to spin!

    It doesn’t spin but it moves like waves

  • tom

    Try staring at it for like 30 seconds! When you look at the wall it will appear the exact opposite!

  • Rick Haviland

    Some spin, but other movements also, pretty neat.

    This is actually makes me feel carsick or seasick. It’s difficult for me to look at this for a long period of time. Cool illusion though.

  • Care Bear

    The tiles didn’t spin–my eyes did.

  • Ron Calhoun

    This is one of my favorite type of Optical Illusions.

  • Detective Kitty

    it doesn’t spin for me but scrolling up and down does have that effect

  • Russell Bridge

    My head is spinning!

    Tessellations with actual recognizable shapes are amazingly difficult, and Escher mastered it. His Angels and Devils 2D drawing was actually a step to making a wooden ball with that design carved into it. Escher is DA MAN, no doubt!

  • Cronepsis

    use your peripheral vision, works much better.

    The only way to get an effect is to scroll up and down but cool never the less.
