Optical illusions are super cool tricks that our eyes play on us, making us see things that are not really there, or see things in a different way than they really are.
Sometimes, these illusions make us think that things are moving when they are not, or that they are a certain color when they are different.
They make our brains think that things are bigger, smaller, closer, or further away than they really are.
Now, you might wonder where these optical illusions come from.
Well, they’ve been around for a really long time.
In fact, ancient Greeks used to make their pottery with designs that created optical illusions.
Today, we can find optical illusions almost everywhere, in books, on the internet, or even in museums.
They are used in art and design to make things more interesting and add a fun twist.
So, even though optical illusions might fool our eyes, they are cool to look at and are a neat way to see just how amazing our eyes and brains really are!
