Muller Lyer Illusion

Nice project! I thought you did a pretty good job explaining the illusion. It might have been nice to have a little more explanation of “3-dimensional perception” because I got a little confused how we went from discussing arrows on a 2-d page to talking about 3-d relationships between objects. But I liked how you pointed out that this illusion could be exploited to create the effect that objects in art works are different distances from the viewer.
I also though your real world examples were great, especially the penalty kick one. Also, the example of the illusion in architecture was really clearly explained and the image was very helpful. I wish you had an image to go with your discussion of the illusion in paintings, too!
