My optical art has been featured in the February issue of the German science magazine PM.
Focus is an Italian monthly popular science magazine published in Milan, Italy, with which I have collaborated for more than 10 years.
Focus Magazine issue #336 featuring my article and my optical illusions has been released on October 2020. It contains my special 10-page dossier on visual perception with over 13 original visual illusions of my creation and their related explanation.
The cover also features a special effect I designed for Focus: as you read the main title, the cover image moves and, curiously enough, the title changes if you look at it closely (ILLUSIONI) or from a distance (COSA VEDI?).

Here is a neat optical illusion project I was commissioned by “Art of Play“. From one perspective, the grooves in the metal die-cut bookmark seem to be an abstract design but place the pattern against a solid background and a familiar figure pops into view!

Which direction is the rotation? Some spokes appear to rotate CW while the disc rotates CCW.
