1. Stare at the red dot on the girl’s nose for 30 seconds.
2. Turn your eyes towards a plain flat surface.
3. Blink your eyes very quickly. What do you see?

I did a science research project on color perception when I was in 7th or 8th grade and my experimentation was to map the residual colors people see from staring at certain color for so long. My research sucked and I didn't know it at the time, but the color is always opposite on the color wheel so it is effectively a negative. I just wanted to say I've never seen it done so effectively as this one.

Also, I have no idea why they put the three multicolored dots there as that has nothing to do with anything other than to give your eye something to lock onto.

is it just me or is her hand positioned differently in the mental image (inward opposed to outward)?
