The Cafe Illusion

There was fun at Maths Club on Tuesday trying to reproduce the Münsterberg illusion.  This became well known in 1973 as the Cafe Wall Illusion when someone recognised the design in the tiles of a cafe wall in Bristol. The illusion is created using only horizontal and vertical lines, but drawn in a way that makes the lines in the image appear to be sloped!
Next week, we continue our creative exploration of Maths but with a Christmas twist.   We’ll need lots of industrious Maths helpers; will two weeks be enough time?  See how we do in the last bulletin of 2023….!
