Black Tie International:
Liberty Science Center/ ILLUSION Exhibit





Jersey City, New Jersey  – Is anything really as it seems? Don’t believe everything you see and hear in the world of ILLUSION – the new mind-bending exhibition opening at Liberty Science Center on February 4. Making its Northeast debut, ILLUSION: Nothing Is As It Seems provides perception-shattering insight into the human mind while playfully combining the techniques used by magicians and explored by psychologists.


ILLUSION investigates how perception defines the way we see, feel, think and understand the world. Visitors will question their reality and their perceptions of the world as their senses become distorted and logical thinking mystified.


We’re excited to welcome the new Illusion exhibit to Liberty Science Center,” said Paul Hoffman, President and CEO of Liberty Science Center. “Magic and science are intertwined, and LSC is the first museum with a Magician-in-Residence, David Blaine. The Illusion exhibit proves how easily the human mind can be fooled by combining magic with psychology, optical illusions with scientific reasoning, and confusion with clarity.”


Visitors will experience a variety of installations in the exhibition, created by Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, that will deceive their eyes and show that what they perceive is often radically different from the reality of what their eyes observe.


The Invisible Eye will allow you to see an eyeball construct itself from thin air, and you can gaze into a mirror and morph into your inner animal at All the Universe is Full of the Lives of Perfect Creatures. Delicate Boundaries creates a space that allows the worlds inside our digital devices to move into the physical realm as bugs crawl off the screen and onto your body, and Counter, using a trompe l’oeil effect, tries to convince us that a two dimensional object is actually three dimensional.  


Other experiences will offer further insight into the human mind through the exploration of sensory deception. Audio illusions will conjure the sounds of another space with visitors being able to experience a virtual haircutthrough sensory stimulants, while Significant Birds explores the way the human ear perceives complex sounds and the sound of a voice.


ILLUSION will be at Liberty Science Center from February 4 through August 27, 2017, and is included with general admission tickets ($21.75 for adults, $18.75 for seniors 62+, and $17.75 for children ages 2-12). Museum members and children under 2 are free.
