Op art works are by no means only directed at our sense of sight. With their powerful effects and optical illusions they lead to experiences of powerful sensory overkill. A dizzying overview of sensory illusions in art, from Piranesi to Riley, this eclectic volume presents a deceptive game of the senses, covering a wide spectrum ranging from panel paintings, reliefs and objects to installations and experiential spaces, to film and computer-generated art.
