Hybrid Imagery



Hybrid Imagery combines the low spatial frequencies of one picture with the high spatial frequencies of another. The end result is an optical illusion that can be perceived in two ways.

Can you see Albert Einstein?

Who else do you see?

When I first glanced at it, I saw what I think is a female, but now all I can see is Albert.

What is weird is that I saw Marilyn Monroe easily when the picture was shrunken (if you go to smichra's page it is evident, but I did not see it on your page.

Perception studies really weirds me out.

at 1st and for a pretty long time only Albert. But then I squinted my eys and saw Marilyn-lol. That's pretty cool!!!

Just like Dawn, I had trouble seeing it with my eyes completely open, but the squinted eyes trick worked. Neat!

Neat. I agree with Leesa, I could tell it was Marilyn Monroe when it was shrunken very easily. So, I was very surprised to see Einstein too. I minored in psychology back in college and this definitely reminds me of some experiments we’d conduct. Thanks so much for sharing this Dr. Deb.
