design motifs of ancient Mexico are optical art as are the Roman mosaic floors at Antioch. All of which proves the obvious, namely, that man has always been in possession of a magnificent scanning device (the eyeball), a fabulous selective light detector (the retina), and a fantastic interconnected digital computer (the brain). If optical art has an immediate appeal to the untutored eye so much the better. An innocent approaching a battle scene by Uccello, or first entering Chartres Cathedral… Expand

Op Art: Perceptions of reality
OP ART: PERCEPTIONS OF REALITY Christine M. Humphrey December 5, 2008 This thesis and exhibition examine the connection between neurobiology and Op Art. Neurobiological explanations of Op Art'sExpand
Moiré effects produced by superpositions of micro-lens arrays
Moiré effects result from the superimposition of repetitive structures. The beauty of these moirés comes from the fact that macroscopic shapes seem to appear from the superposition of layersExpand
A Variational Approach to Moir E Pattern Synthesis
Moir e phenomena occur when two or more images are nonlinearly combined to create a new \superposition image". Moir e patterns are patterns that don't exist in any of the original images but appearExpand
Focal length measurement by the analysis of moiré fringes using the wavelet transformation
Abstract A novel method, where moiré patterns, produced by the images of reference gratings, and a CCD pixel array are used to measure the focal length of a lens is presented. The tested lens couldExpand
Band moiré images
TLDR
A mathematical model describing the geometric transformation that a moiré image undergoes, when its base layer and its revealing layer are subject to different freely chosen non-linear geometric transformations is proposed. Expand
Perceptual Disruption and Composure in Bridget Riley's Fall
ABSTRACT The geometry of the conspicuous variations in the apparent contrast observed in Fall, a representative painting by Bridget Riley, is analyzed here with a computational model of human vision.Expand

Beating Shapes Relying on Moiré Level Lines
TLDR
The method proposed generates moiré lines located between the shape foreground and background centers and the shape boundaries that move and give the impression of beating shapes upon relative displacement of the superposed base- and revealing-layer gratings. Expand
Hiding Information in Multiple Level-line Moirés
TLDR
This paper uses tessellations to incorporate two or more moirés within the same layer to increase the difficulty of counterfeiting and can be extended to other fabrication technologies. Expand
The Howard Wise Gallery Show Computer-Generated Pictures (1965): A 50th-Anniversary Memoir
ABSTRACT In April 1965, the Howard Wise Gallery in New York City held a show of computer-generated pictures by Bela Julesz and Michael Noll. This show was a very early public exhibit of digital artExpand
