Human movement in animation : BioMotionLab

One of the most difficult moves to get into an animation, with sufficient realism, is that of a person walking.
There are different groups investigating on how to interact with the world of human beings, analyzing how is the sensory information processing, perception, cognition and communication.

Perception and contours

Gestalt laws to identify numerous visual recognition processes are unsuccessful leading to optical illusions.

The most common are “Fund-Figure” in which the outline of objects defines what can be found in the first or last plane.

The “Familiarity of objects” also heavily involved in the recognition and constantly compared with the known elements looking for repeating patterns.


The phenomena that affect perception are varied. An element isolated not look the same if you are surrounded by other elements. Its color, their size or shape are altered in the process of recognition to which our senses undergo.
A set of basic rules collected as “Leyes de la Gestalt” allow us to understand the processes that influence the shape recognition.

The Gestalt laws are based on the idea that "the whole is more than the sum of its parts", outlining key elementary processes of the organization of information in the perceptual process.

Optical illusion based on comparison with the environment


Perceiving is the process we made when decode visual information we receive and understand.

Errors that occur in this process result in different types of optical illusions, that can be classified or grouped into types based on Gestalt process involving the analysis of stimuli.

Optical illusion from the perspective


The Gestalt laws of perceptual processes governing. Experience and comparison with the everyday is one of the mechanisms used in the process of interpreting what our senses perceive.

Optical illusions are simply a misunderstanding of mental reconstruction of the outside world caught on view.

Whodunnit? Test percepción


These days I'm doing a scientific experiment about perception; a colleague has sent me this video that shows that sometimes (mostly) not find what you are looking for but can not have it in front.

A funny video that makes us perceive clearly how difficult it is to appreciate our surroundings in detail.

Percepción: Test the dancer [School]

I rescue a new work of my students in educational innovation projects involving training with their blogs. In this case, the group “Geometry Hicks” nos aporta un interesante enlace sobre aspectos de la percepción basados en las leyes de la Gestalt, called “Spinning Girl” or “Test the dancer”, con una ilusión óptica.

Victor Molev

Victor Molev national one Nizhniy Novgorod (Russia) in 1955. An architect by training and vocation painter enlightens us with his grotesque forms, double images in all creation. His portraits are known for exceptional materialization, recreating details with great fidelity by a symbolism that captures the essence of the subject with great success. Las imágenes… (leer más)

Double images: Group: Advertising Camel: Brick Wall

A new example in which the Laws of Gestalt perceptual give us the keys for decoding an image with double meanings.
The fight between the perception of “the everyday” like a house of an urban landscape and the process of “Equality or equivalence” that give rise to regular patterns grouping, as is the case with the exposed brick wall, make us jump between the two images, city ​​street or advertising Camel.

Percepción: Leyes de la Gestalt

Among the theories that have been developed around the sense of sight, are of special interest are those that are included under the so-called “Gestalt Theory”, which highlights a set of laws that structure the cognitive process which takes place during the decoding of the information you give us light.
