Recording of Optical Illusion Art: Using math, perspective, and dimension to create mind-bending sculptures with Anton Bakker, Doris Schattsneider, Tom Verhoeff, Stephen L. Macknik, and Susana Martinez-Conde

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Wednesday, Februrary 24, 2021.

Appropriate for ages 10 and up.

Join artist Anton Bakker and a team of experts in this exploration at the intersection of math, perception, and art.  Starting with the two-dimensional work of M.C. Escher and moving into the world of three-dimensional sculpture, Anton, the creator of MoMath's popular Alternative Perspective show, leads us on a journey into the world of optical illusion.  Joined by mathematicians Doris Schattschneider and Tom Verhoeff and neuroscientists Stephen L. Macknik and Susana Martinez-Conde (who together created the Best Illusion of the Year Contest), Anton demonstrates how sculpture can be not just an aesthetic pursuit but also a medium in which to demonstrate how a limited, singular perspective can present a view of "reality" that completely fools the mind.
