Takahiro Kawabe: “Danswing Papers”. Japan
Gregory and Heard (1983) reported a striking visual illusion called the phenomenal phenomenon. By extending the illusion to real objects, we report that the luminance contrast between static “real” objects and a dynamic luminance background causes drastic motion illusions in the objects. It is an amazing experience to see the movement of static real objects that should not move. Elaborating the luminance patterns of the real objects’ edges, it is possible to give not only translation but also compression/expansion and rotation impressions. The illusion is definitely useful to give motion impressions to paper-based advertisements.
