For this studio, “Illusions and the Brain”, we designed a Perspective Tunnel which is a short length tunnel that gives the illusion of longer length tunnel by adding special effects. Our group wanted to create the Perspective Tunnel to show how a short run could appear very long to the eye by adding effects. Inside the Perspective Tunnel are square cut outs that get smaller as they go back into the tunnel. LED lights under the square cut outs slowly turn on and off square by square into the distance to make it seem that the tunnel keeps going into the horizon. Our inspiration came from looking at a video based on a fire illusion. After doing further research, our group decided to make this Perspective Tunnel because it was portable and could be shown anywhere.
