Maze optical illusion: The Jagged Swirl - by Yonatan Frimer

Swirl that Is Jagged Maze - Optical Illusion

jagged swirl maze optical illusion by Yonatan Frimer

Maze of a jagged swirl that is pretty trippy to look at.
Maze solution for the jagged swirl maze.

This maze optical illusion of a jagged swirl is created by a making and edge detect sort of illusion with lines converging toward the center vanishing point and then also having a series of concentric circles that "slide" the pathways along the converging lines. This effect creates the visiual illusion that the entire graphic is spinning and it makes the eyes want to keep getting a grasp on the images as it flees visually.

While this maze maze seem to be animated and to move a bit while you look at it, you can rest assure that this is a static, non-moving image. The reason that you might think otherwise is caused by the optical illusion nature of the graphic. While most mazes are simply boring puzzles that only require you to find the path, this one ups the ante and makes it difficult to just look at it by incorporating a strong artistic visual illusion effect.
