Ormond member Helen Mac Mahon has work exhibited as part of ‘ILLUSION on Tour’, the Trinity College Science Gallery’s touring exhibition, at the Petrosains Discovery Centre in Kuala Lumpur. The show runs until December.
‘Petrosains, The Discovery Centre at Suria KLCC presents a new visiting exhibition – “Illusion”, an exhibition which offers an insight into the human mind through an exploration of the motivations and mechanisms of sensory deception. In simpler terms, “Illusion” will make you question what you see and will help you to investigate how perception underpins the way we see, feel, think and understand the world.
“Illusion” was developed by Science Gallery at Trinity College, Dublin and offers a diverse range of artworks or exhibits that deal with different types of illusions, from Significant Birds by Nye Parry, Cubes by Jennifer Townley and The Hurwitz Singularity by Jonty Hurwitz. All exhibits will deceive the senses, showing that what we perceive is often radically different from the reality of what our eyes observe or our ears hear.
This exhibition recently showcased in Charlotte, North Carolina and Petrosains is their first venue in Asia, which makes it a MUST-VISIT exhibition. It will be at Petrosains from August 2015 till December 2015’
