Optical Men

By: Dane Sutt

Science: The figure is flopping between images for instance the image above could be perceived as a girl or a person playing a saxophone. Since ambiguous figures have two images in 1 image your brain can fuel what you see. For instance if I was attracted to women I would most likely see the women first. Ambiguous figures are drawn in such a way that it is left for the brain to see what it is seeing. What happens is when you look at an ambiguous figure your brain automatically makes you look at the thing that directs most attention and in this case for me it is the woman because of the black dot outside of the figure. (cover up the black dot and then you see the saxophone). Your brain fills in the face through the pattern of the face on the picture.
