Do You Remember the Art of the Magic Eye?

Who remembers Magic Eye? Yep, those computer generated 3D images embedded in repeated patterns. When you keep your focus on a specific point, let’s say in the center of the picture for example, then relax your eyes until the picture becomes blurry and doubled, you will see an image that literally draws you into the picture.

Magic Eye Illusion

invisible you are
blending into the crowd
an optical illusion
in a 3D stereogram
I stare with blurred vision
suddenly drawn into a scene
discovering you were watching me
there all along, hidden in plain sight
like a two-way mirror, a fractal game
magic eye drawing me into the frame.
