Today morning we have life drawing, we used the chalk to draw. I really like using the chalk, because all the colour can mix together and using the chalk let me feel more relaxed. Besides, we used the colour paper and put more colour on our painting, I tried to use more colour, when we are using the colour, we need to think the background and to match them, it’s a great way to draw life drawing, I like it.
In the afternoon, I keep thinking the themes and the element which can combine with the themes. Firstly I want to use the “mirrors” as my first theme, however, after I search some information, I found that the reflection of the mirrors is kind of illusion and there are a lot of illusion in our life, besides, the theme which is “illusion” can include more, so I want to use this them.
There are another element I think which related to the theme.
I think mosaics it’s kind of illusion, nowadays people changed a lot and put it t0 as the decoration for building and wall. It let me get inspiration, I want to use CD to make a similar one, because the CD also have the reflection and cut it to make several pieces, recombined them.
I will go to the Barcelona, and there are so many fantastic GAUDÍ building, so I think I can got more primary research.
2. film-The illusion
I search a film which relate to the illusion, I plan to watch this film.
The original version of this illusion was first reported by German physiologist Ludimar Hermann in 1870, and simply involves a white grid on a black background. As you move your eyes around the image, dark dots quickly appear and disappear at the intersections. However, whenever you look directly on any intersection, the dark dots vanish.

This amazing illusion was created by Edward H Adelson from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Although it may seem impossible to believe, the squares marked ‘A’ and ‘B’ are actually exactly the same shade of grey! Your eyes and brain are constantly trying to figure out the colour of the objects around you, and in doing so automatically compensate for shadows. The square marked ‘B’ is in the shadow cast by the green cylinder, while the square marked ‘A’ is outside of the shadow. Your eyes and brain see that the two squares are the same shade of grey, but then think, ‘Hold on – if a square in a shadow reflects the same amount of light as a square outside of the shadow, then in reality it must be a much lighter shade of grey.’ As a result, your brain alters your perception of the image so that you see what it thinks is out there in the real world.
The horizontal lines in this image appear to be sloping, but in reality they’re parallel to one another. Why does it work? Although it’s easy to see the mortar line between two black tiles or two white tiles, it’s much harder to see the mortar line between a white tile and a black one. Your brain fills in the gap by seeing it as part of either a white or black tile. This, in turn, makes the tiles look wider at one end than at the other, creating the illusion of a series of wedge-shaped tiles, which makes the lines appear to slant.
Although the coils in the image appear to be rotating, in reality they’re completely stationary. The effect works best in peripheral vision, so when you stare at one of the coils it will appear stationary while those around it will appear to rotate. This wonderful illusion was created by Japanese psychologist Akiyoshi Kitaoka from Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto.
Magic is a kind of illusion, because in fact, magic is not true, people use some skill to let people believe that’s true. Make a illusion installation is the same, using people’s feeling to create some interesting thing.
