Not only because I am a visual artist,
but also because I am a visual artist with a very special advantage when it comes to creating a 3D illusion
on a 2D surface, since I only ’see’ out of one (myopic) eye,
I am already half-way there!
(or maybe 1/3 way there, depending on how one
measures these things.)
This post will be the first of many on The Science of Vision
and Visual Perception, including illusions, optical effects, atmospheric effects, anatomy and much more.
I always think it best to start with the basics. So here are two excellent Podcast-Video-Blog-Things to start with:
Eye Health & Seeing Better
Huberman Lab Podcast #24
PRIMARY VISUAL CORTEX
For a really deep-dive into ‘Visual Perception’ check out this guy’s Blog!
My ‘Research and Development Department’ here at Art & Soul Productions are throwing a fit right now because I’m sharing this with you (They’re all so competitive and secretive about their sources!)... and ‘Legal’ insists that I not use the terms ‘borrowed’ or ‘lifted’ or ’steal’ when referring to all the great stuff I have gotten from his blog, but they say ‘Influenced by’ is a much safer term (if less accurate).
More on the ‘Gurney Journey’ later." -RQ
