This Image Isn't Moving – Or Is It?

This mind-bending image looks like it's moving, but it's actually completely still.

It's an optical illusion created by artist Akiyoshi Kitaoka.

The design plays a trick on your brain called the 'anomalous motion phenomenon'.

It works by how the image hits a specific spot on your retina.

Your brain is convinced there's movement, even though there's none!

Optical illusions are fascinating – they show the quirks of our perception.

How does this illusion work for you? Is the movement subtle or intense?
