ILLUSION: NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS. “Get ready for an exhibition that will blow your mind! Illusion: Nothing Is As It Seems is designed to make you question your perception of the world around you, and perhaps reality itself. The exhibition’s dozens of thought-provoking exhibits explore principles rooted in magic, art, neuroscience, physics, biology, psychology, and technology. Gaze into a mirror and watch yourself morph into your inner animal. See how theater, haunted houses, dark amusement park rides, and magic tricks use a special effects technique called Pepper’s Ghost to deceive you. Experience a virtual haircut, enabled by high-tech sensory stimulants. The exhibits include optical, perceptual, and audio illusions. Science and art intersect in this mind-boggling, mesmerizing exhibition.” Created by science gallery at Trinity College Dublin, part of the Global Science Gallery.
