Perspective and other Optical Illusions


– Sold Out

| /

Can something really be visible but not there at all? Do things always look smaller when they are further away? Is it ever possible to have a direct and true experience of reality? Are you totally sure? McNaughton takes us on a classical journey through the history of artistic perspective, showing how the eye can tricked and confused, and the brain befuddled, and the philosopher inside all of us awakened by the nature of illusion.
