Astonish yourself with optical illusions and amazing visual phenomena as you explore the science of human perception in this fascinating kit! Optical Science and Art: The Science of Light, Optics, and Visual Perception. Experiment with light and the color spectrum by building a color wheel, a fiber optic peacock, and diffraction glasses. Learn how the eye and a camera are similar and how they are different. Build a camera obscure and pinhole glasses. Investigate lenses and light refraction. Experiment with spatial vision and depth perception with 3D glasses and an Ames room model. Find your blind spot and watch things disappear. View stunning optical illusions involving shapes, color, depth, and scale. Make a curved line look straight. Turn cardboard transparent. See the world shrink. Make white by mixing red, green, and blue, and see colors in black and white. Learn about how optical illusions relate to techniques commonly used by artists. See firsthand how your eye and brain work together to perceive color, light, depth, perspective, size, shape, and motion. Conduct over 25 experiments, guided by the 48-page, full-color manual.
