No, it is not moving and yes your eyes are still fine. This is the cover image of Merriweather Post Pavilion, the 8th studio album of Animal Collective. The much-anticipated and now celebrated album boast trippy cover art inspired by the work of Japanese psychologist Akiyoshi Kitaoka.

Soulwax: ‘Any Minute Now’ (2004)

This Trevor Jackson design simply looks like white dots on a black mesh. Move away from your screen…and I mean, Awaaaaay…say 3 meters.

Soulwax: ‘Nite Versions’ (2005)

Same concept as the one above.

Black Lips- 20 Million Thousand (2009)

cd-packaging-blacklips-cd-cover

Okay, same concept as Soulwax’s but you’ll really see an image this time. (Aren’t you dizzy yet? I got a headache while making this post. Don’t worry, the ones below are not as straining to the eyes.)

Def Leppard: ‘Retro Active’ (1993)

cd-packaging-def-leppard-retroactive-cd-cover

Looks familiar because this is inspired from Charles Allan Gilbert’s 1892 sketch ‘All Is Vanity’. Do you see a woman staring at the mirror or do you see a big skull?

Santana: ‘Santana’ (1969)

cd-packaging-santana-cd-cover

Looks like a hungry, angry lion at first glace but when you look closer, you’ll find a boy and a four human heads. Can you see all four heads?

Spiritualized: ‘Let It Come Down’ (2001)

cd-packaging-spiritualized-cd-cover

What looks like a 3D image of a girls face  is actually a concave carving. Yep, concave as in inward.

The Heliocentrics: ‘Out There’ (2007)

Okay, so here’s another one that can make us dizzzzy.

Andrew Gold: ‘What’s Wrong With This Picture?’ (1976)

cd-packaging-andrewgold-album

They say that there are 32 (yes, 32!) things wrong with this picture – I’ve only seen 3 but I’m not even sure if they are included 0n the list.  All I can say is-nice job with marketing.

Traffic: ‘The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys’ (1971)

cd-packaging-traffic-cd-cover

Classic optical illusion. Which side is the front of the cuboid?
