Vegetarian Ideal

as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

with reverence in order to give it true value.

Optical Illusions and Pareidolia



Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.
--   Samuel Johnson



"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
- Abraham Lincoln





Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus being perceived as significant. To put it simple, it happens when you see faces or animals in clouds, Jesus imprints on toasts, etc. 

In general, such “sightings” are usually too vague or subjective for effect to be decent, yet every now and then something of general interest pops-out. 

Spirit of Decay Optical Illusion 


 
George recently shared this magnificent photo on our Facebook channel, where it was voted (by vast majority of our fans) as next featured illusion for our beloved website :D I wasn’t keen on it at first, but it seems that the eyeball in this guy’s sink is one of the best optical illusions our audience has seen in ages. The best things sometimes happen upon us unintentionally, and this is exactly what happened to Liammm when he decided that water circling the drain of his sink would make for a nice photographic subject. Some of our fans even suggested that the illusion is more pronounced when you’re looking at it’s thumbnail, via one of our widgets.

Effect in place is called Pareidolia, just FYI.

Eye See You!





After I have finally managed to see him in each of his previous stunts, he does it all over again, presenting us with whole new set of photos from his latest performances. Not to mention he’s getting better with each blend! I guess we should be happy, but still…

Time to roll-up our sleeves one more time, and exercise our awareness again. His newest #art installation is currently exhibited in Eli Klein, popular New York art gallery, and is titled “Hiding in The City“.
