Left Brain / Right Brain ?

Try going to this page and scroll down to the spinning silhouette girl.
Then decide if she is spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise.
Then read the accompanying description.

It says you can make her spin the other direction if you concentrate hard enough,
but so far, I can only see her spinning clockwise.

How about you? This is pretty interesting and even more so considering the nature of the group.
Please post here which direction you see her spinning.

Clockwise here too Mike. I can make her turn either way at will by thinking it that way.

Hi Mike,
Thats really good, at first she went clockwise but then she changed and went anti -clockwise and then went clockwise again !! I think it proves beyond doubt the long lasting effects of inhaling solvents !! ha ha !! :shock:

Both...

Concentrate on her feet for a while and she switches.

But really...
Most of the people here are probably artistically inclined. If the chart is correct, most of us should probably see her spinning clockwise (most of the time).

Please post the direction you see her spinning.

Darla can see her spinning both directions and sometimes see her switching regularly like a can-can dancer.

I finally got her to spin the counter-clockwise direction after staring only at the feet and shadows.

Both directions. If I look directly at the figure it's clockwise only, look to the bottom or top of the screen and back to mid torso it changes directions every time.

The effect seems similar to rendering incised letters in PS. Depending on the angle you view it from, an incised letter appears to be prismatic. What makes the difference is the direction of the light source, but can still be viewed a raised or recessed letter.
