Optical Illusions and Visual Phenomena

These pages demonstrate visual phenomena, called “optical illusions” or “visual illusions”. The latter is more appropriate, because most effects have their basis in the visual pathway, not in the optics of the eye. I selected here on relative novelty and interactivity. I will expand the explanations when I find the time, to the degree that these phenomena are really understood.
