Bjorn Borg Hollow Face
Category: 3D Illusions | Added: August 29, 2009 | 7 comments
This picture of Bjorn Borg created and used in experiments at Uppsala University in Sweden appears to be convex in that it is raised outwards from the frame towards you. In reality the image is actually concave, it is pushed inwards away from you. This type of illusion is known as the 'hollow-face illusion'.

Fraser Spiral Illusion
Category: Shape and Color | Added: August 29, 2009 | 8 comments
Developed by psychologist James Fraser in 1908, the Fraser Illusion appears to be a spiral pattern converging in the distant center with a black, white and grey chequered background. In reality the spirals are not really spirals at all but a series of concentric circles, the background gives the illusion that the circles are spiralled.

These two shapes made up of striped lines look wavey and disorganised, however on closer inspection they actually make up two perfect circles, one inside the other.
