Optical illusions show how we see by Beau Lotto

Beau Lotto is founder of Lottolab, a hybrid art studio and science lab. With glowing, interactive sculpture — and old-fashioned peer-reviewed research—he's illuminating the mysteries of the brain's visual system.

Beau Lotto's color games puzzle your vision, but they also spotlight what you can't normally see: how your brain works. This fun, first-hand look at your own versatile sense of sight reveals how evolution tints your perception of what's really out there.

According to Lotto, relationships and statistical correlations are everything, the brain simply can't do absolutes. However, these patterns remain ambiguous until the brain can find the behavioural significance of what they meant in the past.
