This fantastic illusion is by the great David Macdonald. You can see more of David's work in our gallery here.
This illusion is one of speed. By putting your hand up to the screen you can make this animation go faster.
As you probably know here at Optical Spy we are not all about illusions, we love our art. Especially when it's unusual or thought provoking. Well, when we came across this piece, by Californian artist Paige Bradley, it blew us away and we thought you might like it too.
From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: A social security number, a gender, a race, a profession or an I.Q. I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in, rather than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies? Would we still be able to exist if we were authentically 'un-contained'?
This is a famous old illusion painting. Can you spot what's hiding in the barn?
