How It Works

Cartoon café


Some illusions have the ability to change your perception of what you see and require your brain to switch between interpreta­tions. This café in St Petersburg, Russia, challenges your brain’s sense of depth. The black-and-white furniture makes the room look as if it were a 2D sketch. It is the presence of the customers that forces the brain to process the true 3D. Your eyes use shadows and lighting to help see dimensions, but this café is purposely brightly lit to remove these depth giveaways.

The Bwcafe was designed by artist Anfisa Toshina
