  1. 1. Visual Perception Illusions & Paradoxes d Priyadarshi Patnaik Associate Professor Department of Humanities & Social S i D fH ii S i l Sciences IIT Kharagpur
  2. 2. What about visuals? Many things which are visually communicated or perceived are biologically determined But many other things are learnt Visuals communicate power Visuals communicate emotions Visuals communicate culture

  5. 5. What is perception? Sensation + Interpretation
  6. 6. In philosophy psychology and the cognitive philosophy, psychology, sciences, perception is the process of attaining awareness or understanding of sensory information. The word "perception" comes from the Latin words perceptio percipio and means perceptio, percipio, "receiving, collecting, action of taking possession, possession apprehension with the mind or senses."
  7. 7. When external stimuli is transmitted to our brain through our senses – sensation Devoid of any definition, any interpretation, meaning The simplest building block But then it is taken up by the mind and analyzed Memory is stirred up remembering used up, Sensation identified, matched, given a name, defined, defined interpreted and remembered for future use
  8. 8. Part of what we perceive comes through the senses from the objects before us; another part always comes out of our own head William J Willi James

  21. 21. Filtering Why does focus shift? We filter, partly bl ki certain i W fil l blocking i inputs Limited Mental Capacity
  22. 22. Perception is taking in, filtering and interpretation to make sense of the world. Memory and learning play an important part, but so do certain innate organizational abilities of the mind, highlighted by Gestalt psychologists. The limits of my perception are the limits of my world The word is the world (since it takes us a step further and helps us cognize what we have perceived)
  23. 23. What we shall do next Form perception Colour perception Depth D h perception i These will give us some idea of how and why we visually perceive the many things that we do. yp y g
  24. 24. Form Perception and Gestalt G l
  25. 25. Gestalt (German) used to indicate the form- form- forming capabilities of the mind (Whole form approach) and the belief that this holistic perception is innate to the mind
  26. 26. Figure-g ou d Figure-ground gu e M.C. Escher: Moebious with Birds
  27. 27. The visual system uses an innate binary division – the figure we look at and the ground which is everything else and forms the background This relation is reversible But B we cannot perceive the same thing as fi i h hi figure and ground at the same time – it requires a mental switching l i hi
  28. 28. Gestalt Max Wertheimer Kurt Koffka Wolfgang K hl W lf Kohler We are surrounded by sounds and forms that do not have a sole meaning. At any moment, our g y , perception is what gives it form and meaning.

  75. 75. Illusion There is an innate ambiguity in retinal input. For a g y p given retinal image, there are infinite number of three dimensional images available for interpretation. Usually we get the interpretation right. When we don’t, we have t th i t rpr t ti ri ht Wh d ’t h an illusion. Some illusions arise because there are more than one possible interpretations. An illusion is a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation.
  76. 76. Types of Ambiguous illusions are pictures or objects that g p j elicit a perceptual 'switch' between the alternative interpretations. Distorting illusions are characterized by distortions of size, length, or curvature. Paradox illusions are generated by objects that are paradoxical or impossible. d i l i ibl Fictional illusions (Hallucinations) are defined as the perception of objects that are g p p bj genuinely not there y to all but a single observer, such as those induced by schizophrenia or a hallucinogen.

  84. 84. Escher on Escher "In the horizontal center strip there are birds and fish In equivalent to each other. We associate flying with sky, and so for each of the black birds the sky in which it is flying is formed by the four white fish which encircle it. Similarly swimming makes us think of water, and water therefore the four black birds that surround a fish become the water in which it swims." swims
