STEP #1: PICK A PICTURE

Please select a picture from the list below using the little Radio Button selector. You may only pick one picture per card. If you want to see a full size image of a picture, just click on it. You might want to do that before filling in any information on this page, just so you do not risk losing your work after returning from viewing the image.

The Endless Knot

A shiny brass tube winds endlessly within this twisted knot design.

Gearosity

The three gears seem normal enough at first glance. But they are symbiotic and not meshed like normal gears. Each needs the contours of its neighbor to exist.

The Mystic Wheel

The circle is perfect, the spokes are identical and evenly spaced. Follow any wavy curve around the circle and you will see humps turn to hollows. One side is always humped and the other always hollow. Turn the design upside-down, and the geography remains the same!

Impossible Collage

The striped tubes in the center form two interlaced impossible triangles. The corners are impossible triads, and the center contains yet another impossible structure. A melange of impossibility.

Secret Message

What do the red shapes mean? Can you find the hidden message? Hint: Look carefully at the “negative” spaces between the shapes, and at the shadow too.

An Impossible Triangle

The classic triad shape. This one is made of imported Carrara Marble.

Impossible Square

The twisted square, or impossible square design. Individually the parts look reasonable, but taken as a whole the structure is impossible.

Apparent Movement

If you stare at the center of this design, the white shapes will seem to rotate around the circle. Use your peripheral vision to make these illusions move. Of course, there really is no movement at all.

Apparent Movement II

Look at this design out of the corner of your eye (peripheral vision). The chevron shapes will rotate about the center.

Decorative Wall Unit

The interior decorator who came up with this design is no longer in business. He is now decorating a rubber room somewhere up state. Can you tell how he ended up a drool meister?

How Many White Dots?

How many white dots do you see in this design. How many blue dots?
