Whoah! How the heck does that work?!
I’ve been sitting staring at it for 10 mins and I can’t figure it out :S

Here’s something interesting. If you see this lady spinning clockwise, you use the right side of your brain more often and if you see it spinning counter-clockwise, you use the left side of your brain more often. You can also try to reverse your view of the spin from counter-clockwise to clockwise and vice versa but it’s kinda hard.

Most people would see it spinning counter-clockwise first but I saw it spinning clockwise first. What do you guys think about it?

I saw her spinning clockwise first…it then took me 10 minutes of staring at it to get her to change direcion ¬_¬’ ahh, im going to bed…

There is a trick to counter the spin more easily, I think.
I can see both clockwise or counter-clockwise within some seconds.

@ Tomberry

So can I, but after a little practice. I somehow trick my mind into seeing the right leg as a swinging object and not as a spinning object. From there, I can change the direction just easily either way.

Yeah, the foot is the key.

@ Penguin

No, the shadow’s just there to probably give the silhouette an illusion of dimension. Remember people, everything on your computer screen is flat and 3D is just an optical illusion.

I can easily change the direction by shifting thoughts between the left and right side of my brain. Visualize it, it works.

I saw it spinning clockwise first, then I started reading the text, and I saw it spinning counter-clockwise.

Here’s a good video on youtube.

I’d embed it but that ruins the effect.
