Optical Activity with Ismet Yuksel

“There was a time when meanings were focused and reality could be fixed; when that sort of belief disappeared, things became uncertain and open to interpretation” - Bridget Riley

Op Art is one of the 20th Century‘s Abstract Art movements that uses optical illusions. In this movement, the viewer is given impressions through movements, hidden images and transformed patterns on two-dimensional surfaces. Optical art is, in a way, a perfect integration of science and art. The use of the know-how from science leads to new artwork and new ideas in art.
