Step Into An Optical Illusion!
As part of NPR’s ‘Talk of the nation’ programming, Science Friday is a weekly science talk show, broadcasted all over public radio stations. The show focuses on science topics in the news and brings an educated, balanced discussion about the current scientific issues at hand.
In a recent broadcast, Los Angeles artist Julian Hoeber’s “Demon Hill,” optical illusion room was discussed. The room is on display at the Harris Lieberman Gallery in New York. The room is tilted on a compound angle resulting in disorienting the viewer’s sight and creates an optical illusion where the rules of gravity don’t apply as you expect them to.
Take a look at this video to see how the room works and why it drew 20,000 individuals when it first appeared in Los Angeles.
