Oculus

I was at the museum again the other day, the Museum of Scotland and the Royal Museum, where they had a temporary exhibition on optical illusions. This reminded me how much I love optical illusions and all their head warping goodness.

A nice example from MIT.

I have a vintage postcard at home involving the devil and several young women (perhaps not as much fun as you'd imagine there) in a somewhat similar vein to these. I'll scan it and post it later.
