Does Op Art exist?

Post by Philosophy Explorer » Wed Jun 28, 2017 1:54 am

Think about it. If it exists, it must be an illusion by definition. If it doesn't exist, then what are we experiencing?

If it does exist, how do we distinguish op art from an illusion? Do you think op art can be beautiful? (I do) Or is it still art to you without being beautiful?

So what do you think?

Good.

If I were to set up that link in the OP, the staff would have taken down the thread.
