Artist's Description

There are things that might look mysterious and unreal at first. Some of them such as the Death Valley Sailing Stones, Singing Sand Dunes, or Underwater Waves have been scientifically resolved, some not. Exempli Gratia: a lighthouse which is standing in the middle of a desert. It might look as a mirage or a hallucination. However, if one knows that one is on a shoreline of a sea that evaporated or moved away, it all becomes clear. Therefore, false illusion would be something that seems to be an illusion but is not. In Psychology this phenomena explains as a misleading perception or belief that represents what is observed in a way different from the way it is in reality. We are haunted, not by reality, but by those images we have put in their place. One has to realize that the past and future are all illusions, and they exist only in one’s imagination presently. We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions. All our illusions, false or real, depend immensely on the level of complexity of our own imagination.
