  • 1. What’s our brains up to…!
  • 2. If you see anything turning – you’re in need for a holiday!!! Stare at each circle in isolation and you’ll see they remain motionless!
  • 3. Is everything turning again? If you pay closer attention you’ll realise they don’t.
  • 4. Or perhaps they do???
  • 5. Maybe not … ?
  • 6. The red lines are always parallel to each other!
  • 7. What is it that you see? A spiral or only circles?
  • 8. Pay close attention to this drawing… What can you see? Researchers have proved that small children can just see 9 dolphins!!! If, after 3 seconds, you still can´t spot the dolphins you’ll get well aware of your perverted mind’s associations…
  • 9. Here come the best!!!
  • 10. Focus your attention on the cross in the middle. After a while the moving circle will turn green! If you keep staring at the cross, the purple circles will soon disappear, and you’ll only see the green circle moving about the screen… (Which is actually a purple circle)
  • 11. Watch the spot in the middle. Move your head closer and further…
  • 12. Instructions:1. Keep watching for 40 seconds the four spots in the centre of the drawing. Then look away and wink briskly… What do your eyes see?
  • 13. Lee lo mas rápido que puedas el texto azul hasta el final, sin fijarse en que este se ve algo extraño… En difreetnes invesigtacinoes los cinefiticos inlgeses descbureiron, que es de pcoa impotrancia en que odern etsan las lertas en las palbaras, lo mas improtnate,es que la prirmea y ulimta lerta tieenn que esatr en su luagr.  Lo den meido no es imoprtnate, aun asi pudees leer. Poruqe nosrotos lemeos las pablaras enetras y no lerta por lerta. Observa con cuidado lo que acabas de leer . . .   [sic]

•→Psychedelic White Lines⇐ / •→ Geometric illusions⇐ / •→Sleep

Optical Art often termed ⇒«Op Art»⇐ has its roots from the Bauhaus school borrowing from constructivism. Op Art is often geometrical art that plays tricks on the eyes. It has quite a profound effect on the eyes and is sometimes hard to look at for a period of time. This is because of the intense and excessive stimulation to the eyes and brain. Once dismissed as simply optical illusions, it is now understood that Op Art uses complex color theory and line principals. Op art is done in black and white only and also using certain color combinations because of their relationship to one another produces a certain effect on the eye. These color relationships are simultaneous contrast, successive contrast, and reverse contrast (or assimilation). Using certain color relationships will create the optical illusions such as movement, gyration, hidden images and juxtaposition. You will often hear someone say «That makes me dizzy»…

¤  Victor Vasarely  ⇓ [1906-1997]

· · ·  Music: Edith Piaf: Padam…Padam  ↓

Cet air qui m’obsède jour et nuit  Cet air n’est pas né d’aujourd’hui
Il vient d’aussi loin que je viens  Traîné par cent mille musiciens
Un jour cet air me rendra folle  Cent fois j’ai voulu dire pourquoi
Mais il m’a coupé la parole  Il parel toujours avant moi
Et sa voix couvre ma voix  
Padam…padam…padam… Il arrive en courant derrière moi  
Padam…padam…padam… Il me fait le coup du souviens-toi
Padam…padam…padam… C’est un air qui me montre du doigt
Et je traîne après moi comme un drôle d’erreur Cet air qui sait tout par coeurIl dit:
«Rappelle-toi tes amoursRappelle-toi puisque c’est ton tour’
y a pas d’raison pour qu’tu n’pleures pas Avec tes souvenirs sur les bras…
«Et moi je revois ceux qui restent Mes vingt ans font battre tambour
Je vois s’entrebattre des gestes Toute la comédie des amours
Sur cet air qui va toujours
Padam…padam…padam… Des «je t’aime» de quatorze-juillet
+ Steve Reich, «Music for 18 Musicians»  ↓  [Coldcut remix]


◊  M C Escher  ↓  (1998-1972)

Maurits C. Escher was a Dutch  draftsman, book illustrator, tapestry designer, and muralist, but his primary work was as a printmaker. Aspiring to be an architect, Escher enrolled in the School for Architecture and Decorative Arts in Haarlem. While studying there from 1919 to 1922, his emphasis shifted from architecture to drawing and printmaking upon the encouragement of his teacher Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita. In 1924 Escher married Jetta Umiker, and the couple settled in Rome to raise a family. They resided in Italy until 1935.

After Escher left Italy in 1935, his interest shifted from landscape to something he described as «mental imagery,» often based on theoretical premises. This was prompted in part by a second visit in 1936 to the fourteenth-century palace of the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. The lavish tile work adorning the Moorish architecture suggested new directions in the use of color and the flattened patterning of interlocking forms. Replacing the abstract patterns of Moorish tiles with recognizable figures, in the late 1930s Escher developed «the regular division of the plane.» The artist also used this concept in creating his Metamorphosis prints. Starting in the 1920s, the idea of «metamorphosis»—one shape or object turning into something completely different—became one of Escher’s favorite themes. After 1935, Escher also increasingly explored complex architectural mazes involving perspectival games and the representation of impossible spaces.

A very young museum. Dutch, no subtitles.

In the OP ART Museum you can experience what it’s like to be misled by your own eyes and you can admire different kinds of optical phenomena and illusions. Nothing is what it seems, or is it?

The OP ART Museum aspires to be a low-profile forum for optical phenomena in art, drawings, photography and new media. Additional, temporary exhibitions will be featured on individual artists and exhibitions on a particular theme from the wide range of optical phenomena in art.
