Contest goal:

Everyone has heard about optical illusions. An optical illusion (also called a visual illusion) is characterized by visually perceived images that differ from objective reality. The information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a percept that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source. More info can be HERE.

Your goal is to design an optical illusion. It might be an existing one or a totally new illusion. Keep in mind that your illusion's effect should be clear to the mind and original illusions would be much better than known ones.
Some examples of optical illusions can be found HERE.

Remember you can also upload gifs!
