Illusion Contest Calls for Entries

i-e0ae9af543d6a0eb776726787c0c5081-illusion_circle1.jpg The Best Visual Illusion of the Year Contest is now accepting submissions for its 2008 prizes. The Neural Correlate Society hosts this fun and popular event now entering its fourth year. Last year’s winning illusion will be tough to top!

New this year are the three winners’ trophies, designed by sculptor Guido Moretti. The trophies themselves are visual illusions that change shape when you rotate them. Very cool. Click here to see the sculptures’ shapes when rotated.

The image above is one of the 2007 entrants, “It’s a Circle, Honest!” by David Whitaker. Here’s how he created it.

    Wow–nearly got seasick from some of those.

    Did Petraeus enter anything this year?
