Hollow-face illusion, artwork

Hollow-face illusion, computer artwork. This is an optical illusion where the perception of a concave (hollow) mask of a face appears as a normal convex (protruding) face. This is because the brain has a strong bias for seeing faces as convex, which counteracts competing depth perception information, such as highlights and shadows

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the mesmerizing Hollow-face illusion, a remarkable computer artwork that plays with our perception. At first glance, we are presented with what appears to be a normal convex face, but upon closer inspection, we realize it is actually a concave mask. This optical trickery occurs due to our brain's inherent inclination to interpret faces as protruding rather than hollow. The artist skillfully manipulates depth perception cues like highlights and shadows in this illustration, challenging our visual senses. As we delve into this image, the male subject's face seems to shift before our eyes, revealing its illusory nature. It delves into the fascinating realm of psychology and neuroscience by exploring how our minds can be deceived by ambiguous visual stimuli. Through intricate paneling and oblique views, this artwork explores the complex structures of human faces while simultaneously playing mind games with us. The Hollow-face illusion serves as a testament to the power of perception and reminds us that reality can sometimes be elusive. With its thought-provoking composition and impeccable execution, this print from Science Photo Library captures both the artistic beauty and scientific intrigue behind one of psychology's most intriguing phenomena – an optical illusion that challenges everything we think we know about seeing faces in three dimensions.
