04-02-2017 12:00:00 27-08-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York ILLUSION: Nothing Is As It Seems Exhibit | 9:00AM Is anything really as it seems? Don’t believe everything you see and hear in the world of ILLUSION – the new mind-bending exhibition opening at Liberty Science Center on February 4. Making its Northeast debut, ILLUSION: Nothing Is As It Seems provides perception-shattering insight into the human mind while playfully combining the techniques used by magicians and explored by psychologists. ILLUSION investigates how perception defines the way we see, feel, think and understand the world. Visitors will question their reality and their perceptions of the world as their senses become distorted and logical thinking mystified. Some of the experiences include: The Invisible Eye allows you to see an eyeball construct itself from thin air Gaze into a mirror and morph into your inner animal at All the Universe is Full of the Lives of Perfect Creatures. Delicate Boundaries creates a space that allows the worlds inside our digital devices to move into the physical realm as bugs crawl off the screen and onto your body, Counter, using a trompe l’oeil effect, tries to convince us that a two dimensional object is actually three dimensional. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=213215 Liberty Science Center Liberty Science Center
