Author description: After discovering hollow face illusions, I was obsessed to create an inside out sculpture where the face and hair gradually emerges into the painting this to create a custom illusion that make people stare. I experimented with many materials, colors and depth, after lots of attempts I found a method that worked.
You might think it would trick everyone’s eyes BUT not exactly, People who have schizophrenia have a disconnect from what the eyes see and from what the brain is thinking and are not capable to see the illusion.
