The Mind's Eye

The Mind's Eye

In order to see, your eye must focus light on its retina, convert the light into electrical impulses, and send those impulses to your brain to be interpreted.  All this happens almost instantaneously, allowing you to see your surroundings or read a book.

However, sometimes this process can play tricks on us. When our brain is tricked into seeing something that is not really there, or it interprets an image wrongly, that's what we call an optical illusion.

Illusions can be very deceiving, and magicians use illusions to their advantage to make the audience believe that something happened by magic. The ‘Mind’s Eye’ exhibition reveals some of the secrets behind the illusions. Explore this exhibition to challenge and tease your senses!
