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
