It’s unavoidable that optical illusions will always perplex us and make us doubt our vision, which is captured in cameras. Most people have encountered the iconic optical illusion of a young woman turning into an old woman in a portrait, or a set of geometric shapes that seem to be different sizes than they actually are. Optical illusions are images that do not reflect actual reality and can be divided into three groups: optical, physiological, and cognitive – each with minor differences in their optical illusion pictures. How, then, do they operate?
Our minds are always trying to make sense of visual information by looking for the simplest explanation for a picture. We usually interpret optical illusion drawings as the most basic interpretation of them, and only after a short period do we recognize that some of its elements don’t make sense. These types of drawings do not harm our vision or brain, in fact, they can help in building problem-solving abilities. It is the element of surprise that catches us in what are known as ‘timed photos’: we first view one thing and then it transforms into something else. Look at these optical illusion pictures to observe this for yourself!
