While I was watching the latest Pirates of the Caribbean in D I started wondering about how 3D 'hacks' what we know about the brain's visual processing.
- Colin Ware's great book about visual perception in design
- Ramachandran has some interesting observations here
As 2D artists we're constantly battling with how to render a three dimensional world on a 2D screen or printed page. It's fascinating to me to compare what we know about how the mind parses visual information as opposed to the literal way a camera records an image. So it seems to me the more we, as artists know about the science of seeing can only help us better render convincingly real images. Besides, trying to reverse engineer things like optical illusions is just plain fun.
