Wind of Freedom by Gianni Sarcone

This playful motion optical illusion created by Gianni Sarcone gives the impression that the background is swaying back and forth.  The woman dancing in the foreground and holding a yellow sheet appears to really be enjoying herself.  Do you feel a little dizzy looking at this image?

Today’s animated optical illusion was created by Gianni Sarcone.  The black & white bicycle is static but appears to moving forward and backward in a rocking-type motion.  In reality, this animation just alternates two frames, one of which is the negative of the other. (via Gianni Sarcone)

Flying Boots

I was first shown this illusion by Gianni Sarcone.  I believe he told me that one of his website visitors emailed these photographs to him after they discovered this unintentional optical illusion.  If you look at the four images, it appears that the boots are somehow hovering over the table.  This is especially true in […]
