This is a slide from a praxinoscope, invented by Charles-Emile Reynaud in the early nineteen hundreds. It was created as an optical toy for children to play with. It far outshone its competitors the ‘zoetrope.’

Without the understanding of the ‘Phi phenomenom,’ motion perception would not be possible…

A fantastic insight into the world of Optical Illusions

Animation of a chase through a desert.
The use of camera angles and perspective is awesome
Funny twist at the end  

Earliest form of ‘animation’I believe optical illusions are very similar to present day animation in a literal sense.Animation is the many different frames of colour/picture/shape pieced together to trick the eye into thinking what its seeing is moving or living.Optical illusions also do this with a single image normally, some illusions trick the eye into thinking its seeing movement. Is there a similarity here?#optical illusions and animation.

Théâtre…

Possibly originating in classical Athens, theatre has been flourishing in every culture for the past 2,500 years. 

  Figuratively, ‘theatre’ means a place where an important action takes place.

Theatre is both an artistic impression of a genre of drama and a building in which the impression takes place in.

The drama or event is expressed through gesture, movement, voice, speech, song or dance.

the word “theatre” as derived from the Ancient Greekθέατρον (théatron, “a place for viewing”) and θεάομαι (theáomai, “to see”, “to watch”, “to observe”).

For drama all one needs is a place, a time, one act and one public.

Optique… (Optical/Optics)

 

Optics: 

The study of the properties of light, how it behaves when reflecting of different surfaces and matter and the construction of apparatus that use or detect light properties.

 

Optical:

 Commonly found with illusion following it (Optical Illusion)Optical illusions are visually perceived images that differ from objective actuality. 

Théâtre Optique

So, basically theatre optique is an optical illusion of images that we visually perceive differently from their objective reality of artistic impressionism which is displayed to an audience.

Picture: Mandorla on the cobbled path of Chalice Well gardens Mandorla is an ancient symbol consisting of two circles intersecting each other and forming an almond shape in the centre. It symbolises the conflicts and communication of differentiating worlds, forces, nature. The symbol was created before the Christian era but early Christians used it to describe the combining of heaven and earth, between the eternal and mortal. The circles symbolise communicating but coexistent contrast. The Mandorla is known in both East and West cultures. It symbolises for us the anxiety of life, the anxiety of complementary opposites…Irrational   <->  RationalHeaven  <-> EarthNatural  <-> SupernaturalLife         <->  DeathEsotericism  <->    ExotericismThe Self  <->  The ShadowOptimistic  <->  Pessimistic  http://www.kyrie.com/symbols/mandorla.htm  http://www.sandplay.org/symbols/mandorla.htm

Assumption.Whenever I see a bumblebee on the ground, still alive but with no desire to get up and fly away (even when provoked) I believe it has stung someone. It is crawling along the ground because her sting, poison sac and part of the abdominal contents have been pulled out when she stung and now she will eventually die&#8230; (I&#8217;m saying &#8216;she&#8217; because only female bee&#8217;s have a sting) Does anyone agree with this assumption?
