Still on the move

Scientific American has a fantastic gallery of visual illusions images created both by artists and scientists that produce dramatic false motion from still images.

There’s 12 images, but the one pictured is my favourite which is simply described like so: “This illusion is a contemporary variation on the Ouchi pattern, by Kitaoka”.

As with many illusory motion images, they are sometimes more striking if you move your eyes around the images to look at different parts.
