The presence of a singular red point amongst the others allows the viewer to access and realise the principle behind Tusi’s optical illusion.
Tusi shows how perceptual processes work: organising the information from a global structure towards a more fine-grained analysis. The identification of global structures being useful for the reduction of those stimuli to local structures.
There has been much research about this visual perception phenomenon but, as far as Cinimod Studio and Daniel understand, this is the first time that the Tusi Couple has been physically created, let alone produced into an artwork.
