Every year, there is a competition for who can come up with the best ‘illusion’:
This year’s winner is a dynamic variant of the Ebbinghaus Illusion (by Christopher D. Blair, Gideon P. Caplovitz, and Ryan E.B. Mruczek at University of Nevada Reno):
There are several runners-up including one called ‘A Turn in the Road’ (by Kimberley D. Orsten and James R. Pomerantz, Rice University, Houston):
I can see the dynamic Ebbinghaus effect (although not sure of the difference in seeing it from the side).
However, try as I might I have not been able to see the illusion in the ‘Turn in the Road’.
I don’t see how rearranging the different images alters which one seems to be the odd one out. When the video finishes with an overlap it is unsurprising.
But I think I know what I am supposed to experience. And, perhaps, what is being assumed to be behind this alleged experience.
