Oral presentation: CURIOUS IMAGES
Now, I\u2019m going to talk about curious images. There are lots of types of this, but I
have chosen some of them.
CHANGE
I\u2019m going to show you some types of optical illusions, impossible figures, hide
images and curious paintings by Dal\u00ed and other artists.
CHANGE
1. Cafewall
\ue000
Do you see parallel lines in the bottle?
CHANGE
\ue000
Well, this optical illusion is called cafewall because was discovered in the
wall of a caf\u00e9 by Richard Gregory and other collaborators.
\ue000
It seems that the files aren\u2019t been separated by parallel lines\u2026but, as you
can see in the second image, the lines are parallel.
\ue000
It is caused by the different position of the black and white squares.
CHANGE
2. Ouchi Illusion
\ue000
Here you have to look the bottle and move your head around\u2026
\ue000
When we move our head around while we are viewing picture, the bottle
seems to move above the chequered background.
CHANGE
\ue000
It is called Ouchi illusion, because the Japanese Hajime Ouchi was its
inventor.
CHANGE
3. Rot snake
\ue000
This optical illusion is called rot snake because each round represents
one snake on moving.
\ue000
These are two examples of companies who use the rot snake to do
adverts.
\ue000
The picture on your left is an image of the campaign from of Time Force
watches and on your right is a shop window of a Milano\u2019s shop.
CHANGE
\ue000
This illusion is very good because the rounds are on moving all time.
\ue000
Its inventor is Kitaoka and the popularity of his optical illusion has done
that it has been used for different companies.
CHANGE
4. Impossible figures
\ue000

In 2004 Audi launched an advertising campaign to promote a new car. The slogan was \u201cThe progress isn\u2019t an illusion\u201d and it was based on the use of the impossible figures.

\ue000
The campaign had:
o
Press adverts like the image on your left (with an impossible
balcony).
o
And visual adverts, where the car went trough a city which has
some impossible places.
o
The images on your right are examples of the city. Here, the pillars
aren\u2019t possible and here, the bridge is also impossible.
CHANGE
5. Hide images
\ue000
Here we have hide images, pictures that depending on each person there is
one or another object.
\ue000
Sometimes it\u2019s difficult to see the second object but these pictures are easy.
\ue000
On the first picture there is an Indian who has a black hair and a big nose\u2026
but we also see an Eskimo from behind.
\ue000

The second picture is very well-known and I\u2019m sure you have seen it lots of times. If we look it from left to right we see a rabbit and if we see it from right to left we see a duck.

\ue000
And on the third we can see a face of a girl, and also, a man playing the
saxophone.
CHANGE
6. Dali\u2019s paintings
Now, I\u2019m going to show you some hide images in two Dal\u00ed paintings.
CHANGE
\ue000
\u201cSwans representing elephants\u201d (1937)
o
At first, we have swans representing elephants. Swan, in Catalan,
means \u201ccigne\u201d.
o
Here, the title of the painting is already telling us the effect.
o
Swans are reflected on the water and their reflexes are elephants.
o
I think it\u2019s a very good painting because the swans and their reflexes
are perfect.
CHANGE
\ue000
\u201cParanoiac face\u201d (1935)
o
The second is called Paranoiac face.
o

One day, Dal\u00ed, readimg his papers found this postcard. Quickly, he saw a human face on it and after being sure that this was by his imagination he decided to paint it.

CHANGE
o

The result was it. In his painting we can see the face better because he has painted some trees for represent the hair (a characteristic that the postcard hasn\u2019t).

CHANGE
7. Other artists
And finally, I\u2019m going to show you curious paintings by other artists.
- John Pug
\ue000
At first the paintings by John Pug.
\ue000
They are really impressive because they seem real and walls aren\u2019t
destroyed.
\ue000
That painter is specialist in doing murals of the Trompe l\u2019oeil type. This
type of optical illusions uses different techniques to get the perspective.
\ue000
First mural is called \u201cSeven point one\u201d and it\u2019s in California.
\ue000
And the second mural is called \u201cAcademe\u201d and is also of California.
CHANGE
- Paul N Grech
\ue000
Second paintings are of a New York painter, Paul N Grech.
\ue000
Here, we have Einstein and Beethoven faces which are composed by
people or animals.
\ue000
(Einstein) Here you can see one person, here another and here a duck.
