In the process of investigating this optical illusion, I learned about how they can be used to give emphasis to certain parts of a piece of art. In all of the examples, the illusory contours gave each piece additional form without using too many additional outside details. For this illusion specifically, I could use it in my digital media work in a way similar to how they were used here, namely, to give my work a more simple appearance while still giving enough nuanced detail to be distinguishable.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
