ILLUSION on Tour at the Guangdong Science Center, China.
The Science Gallery Trinity College Exhibition 'ILLUSION" continues its tour having completed a run in the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) in Portland. It is now in China at the extraordinary Guangdong Science Centre and the exhibition opened on Saturday 28th of April.
ILLUSION: NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS offers an insight into the human mind through an exploration of the motivations and mechanisms of sensory deception. This exhibition joins magic with psychology, optical illusions with scientific reasoning, and confusion with clarity. ILLUSION investigates how perception underpins the way we see, feel, think and understand the world. It shows how what we perceive is often radically different from the reality of what our eyes observe. Can we control our susceptibility to illusion? Is our tendency to be deceived an advantage in some circumstances and can we use that very human ability—to see and feel things that aren’t there—to benefit our lives in some way?
