The Science of Optical Illusions
Salvador Dali is just one artist that employed the use of double images in his art. This historical practice can really puzzle someone looking at Dali's artwork, until they see the second image. This book introduces readers to interesting artistic concepts as well as how the human brain perceives them. Readers draw connections between scientific theory, art, and their own experiences looking at the many optical illusions found in each chapter. A sure way to draw in reluctant readers, this book is a step beyond simple puzzle books. It's a mind-bending adventure.
