I think the use of words in artwork is interesting, and I really enjoyed looking at your examples. Compared to other illusions that seem like they're tricking your mind, I think the hidden word ones are like puzzles which makes them fun. When I looked some up on google images, my favorite were the 3D ones (http://www.eyetricks.com/3203.jpg). Once you get used to finding the words, it gets easier which while it's cool to see how the human brain adjusts, makes it less fun.
I found your topic and all of your examples very interesting. Instead of having your mind tricked, steganography is more of a trick an artist/designer can use to attract more attention. By having the viewers put in effort to see the letters, they become more familiar with the work and thus remember it better. I like how styled the write-up almost like a game, where the person looks for the letters in the original, and then in the next, you write in the solution. I am curious about whether there is a big difference in noticing the letters in the ones that use other objects (Dali's) or ones that use more abstract figures.
