Curiosity Show's Optical Illusion

11am, 1pm

Naval Group Theatre

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one" said Albert Einstein.

 

We have five senses and a very complex brain which work together to enable us to make sense of the world that surrounds us. But our senses don't always tell the truth and even when they do our brain can work its own mysterious magic, so we see and experience things which are puzzling, mysterious or impossible. We call these optical or visual illusions.

 

Dr Rob Morrison and Dr Deane Hutton from the Curiosity show use a variety of visual illusions and video segments to show how the sensory organs and brain inform us of the world, and how they can be fooled into providing wrong, contradictory and sometimes profoundly disturbing messages.
