Anton Batishev “Illusion”

The origin of art is due to the human need for illusions. From the point of view of philosophy, the desire for an illusory perception of reality is an integral part of human consciousness. Illusions are one of the ways to penetrate the recesses of the human unconscious. Optical illusions test our perceptual abilities and train our eyes and imagination. Illusions of sight refer to psychophysical phenomena and are very difficult to study. The study of visual illusions allows you to penetrate into the laws of the process of visual perception.

Cinema and TV have been created thanks to illusions. Optical illusions are widely used in architecture, clothing in the visual arts, for example, tracking eyes in portraits, index fingers in posters. Scientists have proven that in a red space, a person seems to have a higher ambient temperature and time passes more slowly, with blue, on the contrary. Illusion takes people away from the burdens of reality. The illusions of thinking include stereotypes, myths, simulacra, various forms of self-deception. The plausibility of an illusion requires that the illusion be perceived as reality. Most illusions are unconscious. If our eye was unable to succumb to deception, then painting would not exist, and we would be deprived of all the pleasures of the visual arts. Illusion helps transform the matter of painting into the energy of the visible image.
