Bending Minds and Defying Gravity: GIIS KL Students Explore the Museum of Illusions

Imagine a place where rooms are upside down, mirrors multiply your image endlessly, and vortex tunnels defy gravity! This wasn't a scene from a science fiction movie, but the exciting field trip destination for  students of GIIS KL: The Museum of Illusions in Kuala Lumpur!

The museum provided an interactive and mind-bending experience for the students. They weren't just passive observers; they were active participants, experimenting with perspective and learning how artists use it to create illusions in paintings and photographs.

Through various exhibits like the "Upside Down Room" and "Ames Room", students learned how our perception of reality can be manipulated through clever use of light, color, and perspective. They even got to clone themselves in the "Table of Cloning" and explore the infinite reflections in the "Infinity Room".

A main reference point of the exhibition was the clever use of mirrors. These mirrors created mirages, multiplied images, and dead angles, concealing information and generating inexplicable images and sensations. This further emphasized how our perception can be tricked by manipulating the way we see the world.

This trip wasn't just about fun and games; it was also a learning experience. Students gained a deeper understanding of optical illusions and the science behind them. They learned to question their perception and challenge their assumptions about the world around them.

The engaging and interactive environment of the museum sparked curiosity and a sense of wonder in the students. This trip will undoubtedly be a memorable one, reminding them that learning can be both educational and entertaining!
