Stare if you dare

I’ve always had an interest in optical illusions and set out to research the psychology behind them. After completing the research and looking into different kinds of optical illusions, I took a particular liking to the moire? effect. This effect is a type of visual perception that occurs when viewing a set of lines or dots that is superimposed on another set of lines or dots, where the sets differ in relative size, angle, or spacing, they create a sense of motion and disorientation. I created a series of optical illusion posters, which were individually hand screen printed. I printed around 150 different posters using process colours. To collate my posters I designed an A1 sized poster book which explained my process behind my experiments and the notion behind my project.
