When I saw the anomalous motion illusion, I felt quite dizzy. The image is static, but it appears that there’s a part of the figure that moves in a direction that is different from the rest. However, I still enjoyed looking at this visual design and it to amuses me every time I look at it. This visual illusion really messed with my eyes, yet it did not gave me a headache.

About the Anomalous Motion Illusions with Ovals

As I looked more and more at this illusion, the movement seemed to be more intense. I discovered that the circles stop moving if you stare at only one circle. You can try it yourself to see what I mean. I have learned that the image appears to be moving because of the cognitive effects of interacting color contrasts and shape position. I really like how the circles move and I find it absolutely fascinating.
