From doctored photos to flight simulators to sound effects to 3DTV, computed illusions are a rapidly growing part of everyday experience. Join scientist and inventor Matthew Brand for a tour of perception and the math of deception, with eye-opening illusions including MoMath's wall of holographic-looking metal. Matthew will be introduced by Nathan Sawaya, world-famous LEGO sculptor and creator of "The Art of the Brick" exhibition.
