Across Roads Center for the Arts is delighted to host an online workshop presentation on Thursday, December 3, from 7-8:30pm, called, “Illusions in Art and the Art of Optical Illusions,” taught by Michael Strauss, artist, author, and retired UVM professor, with images, video, and exercises for the participants to take part in the comfort of their homes. Participants should know how to Zoom, mute, unmute, activate their video and have their names attached to their devices. It is advised that participants should be 15 years of age or older to take advantage of the material presented. The fee to attend is by self-selected sliding scale donation.
Is seeing believing or is believing seeing? This talk and related demonstrations explore such questions, and the connections between looking at art and looking at magic. Topics will include pattern recognition, optical, color and contrast illusions, visual creation of form, occlusional blocking, amodal completion, misdirection, inattentional blindness, and sleight of hand. If you are an artist, educator, or interested in science, language and perception, you’ll find something of interest in this presentation.
