Guido Moretti - Optical Illusion Sculptures - Exclusive Interview

Guido Moretti - Optical Illusion Sculptures - Exclusive Interview | The brain and illusions | Scoop.it
Here is our first interview with Guido Moretti. We sent these questions before receiving his book, which answers many of these questions. Once you start to understand exactly how he does what he does, and how mathematic it all really is, you gain even more of an appreciation for his work. So without further ado, here is the interview with the one of the most talented 3d optical illusion sculptures in our current time:

Wait - before we jump right into the interview, you better take a look at the optical illusion that he created above. That's right, all three pictures are of the same object, with Guido Moretti in the picture. If you twist the 3d sculpture to the exact angle, you'll actually see another couple optical illusions. The first is known as the Necker Cube, which we use here at coolopticalillusions.com. And the second is the Impossible Triangle, which you can build your own from a printable form at this site. But what we don't have is the middle picture, which is the same sculpture from the side! It's not impossible!
