I really enjoyed learning about how we perceive color, however, I think learning about how we perceive objects was my favorite part of this course. I think I really enjoyed this section because it reminded me of being younger. On the Apple Jax cereal boxes, there were always those images made of dots and the objects that looked like certain figures if you focused right. I never understood how these things really worked until now. I never knew that I was using figure ground segregation to figure out these images. Figure ground segregation is when you determine what part of the environment is the figure so that it stands out from the background. It is so crazy that after this class I understand things I never did when I was younger.
When looking at this image do you see a vase or two people facing one another?
How about this one. Do you see a young woman or an older woman with a large nose?
I like your example of the face picture...At first glance I saw the vase first and then at second glance I realized it was two people.ReplyDelete
I have seen the old lady/young lady picture and at first I automatically saw the young lady and could not even see the older lady at all even when some one pointed it out to me now what I see is the older lady first then the younger lady. It's strange how my perception has changed from the first time I saw the picture.ReplyDelete
