Although camera recordings normally look identical to how we see with our eyes, there is a difference between human vision and images recorded by a camera. We as humans only need 13 milliseconds to perceive an image. Most digital cameras record with a framerate of 25 frames per second. Optic deception is a project which shows the differences in perception. The circles are driven by motors which spin around 75 rotations per second. Due to the speed, you are only able to perceive the colors when you look with a camera. When you look at the circles in real life you only perceive a stroboscopic light in one singular color.
