Optical illusions are wondrous right and no matter how hard you try, you keep on seeing the illusions. These illusions are caused by the visual system and percept which appears to differ from the reality.
There are various types of illusions but the classifications can be difficult. As per some of the researchers, the three main classes of illusions are physical, physiological, and cognitive illusions. In each of these categories lie four kinds which are ambiguities, distortions, paradoxes and fictions.
Akiyoshi Kitaoka is a professor in the Department of Psychology at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan. He is studying visual perception, optical illusion, trompe l’oeil and 3D since 2002 so that he could produce mind-bending artworks. He wants to create artwork which looks like animated GIFs or Short videos but in actuality, they are normal and static images.
No, these are not GIFs, they are simply static pictures which your brain and eye is processing to be moving image. It is NOT. Try a bit harder to convince yourself that these are static images.
Some of the times it is a psychological paradox and sometimes physiological fiction.
Physical illusions occur to someone because of the physical environment, like optical properties such as water.
Physiological illusions occur because of the visual pathway of the eyes. For example, excessive stimulation of a particular receptor type.
Cognitive visual illusions happen because of the result of unconscious inferences and they are the most common amongst this form of art.
