Summary Der zentrale Fokus dieser Publikation ist die Synthese von Wissenschaft und Kunst im Bereich der visuellen Wahrnehmung, insbesondere der Einfluss der im 19. Jahrhundert einsetzenden Wahrnehmungsforschung zu Illusionen, kinetischen Scheinfiguren und Scheinbewegungen auf die apparative/ maschinelle, kinetische Kunst des 20. und auf die computergestützte visuelle Kunst des 21. Jahrhunderts
