weekend silliness: illusion

Akiyoshi Kitaoka

Happy 4th!

This is probably as close as I’ll ever get to showing you multiple fireworks. Speaking of which, I nabbed one of the 8x10s of Mike Sinclair’s fireworks on the 4th shot over at 20×200. What a great way to get affordable art and see the prints of photographers whose work you can’t access in person.

Anyhoo, these are color illusions. The light colored arms of the first image are the same color, as are the green and blue spirls in the third image. Each picture in the second row has the same two colors of spiral, but they look different. What else do graphic designers probably know that we don’t?

There’s plenty more on the website. Looking at the patchwork hearts, I realized I never understood Lichtenstein’s Rouen Cathedral paintings properly. My bad.
