Walking down the street, you see something out of the corner of your eye that catches your attention. "What was that?!" You say to yourself as you double-take in order to make certain you saw exactly what you thought you saw. One of the ideas of Perception that I found interesting examples in real life was the concept of Depth Perception which is defined as our ability to see spatial relations in three dimensions. The intriguing aspect of this is our tendency to trick out brains into seeing something that isn't actually there.
This is an image of a street that has been turned into an enormous piece of art. This street appears to have fallen to pieces, leaving individuals stranded, but it is simply an illusion that was created by chalk. From the correct angle you see a three-dimensional scene, while from a slightly different angle you can clearly see a distorted and altered image. When we perceive this image, we are not capable of recognizing that it i simply an illusion and in that instant it seems as if the image in our vision is actually a three-dimensional object or scene, not simply a side walk chalk drawing. In this way, our minds allow us to see extraordinary things. What illusions have you seen that deceived you?
