Cosmopolitan Singapore

Contemporary, modern, and young at heart?
To my surprise, this is how it looks (the debut issue in Sept 2011)!

Banned for 22 years in Singapore, this women's title has been re-launched by New York-based Hearst Magazines International, in partnership with ACP Magazines in fall.

Dragon Illusion

Incredible Shade Illusion!

Why does the illusion work?
The visual system needs to determine the color of objects in the world. In this case the problem is to determine the gray shade of the checks on the floor. Just the light coming from a surface (the luminance) is not enough: a cast shadow will dim a surface, so that a white surface in shadow may be reflecting less light than a black surface in full light. The visual system uses several tricks to determine where the shadows are and how to compensate for them, in order to determine the shade of gray "paint" that belongs to the surface.
