It is a long exhibition that will run for a period of 17 months from Thursday, September 20, 2018 to Sunday, February 23, 2020.
Professor Sugihara won first prize (highest award) at the Best Illusion of the Year Contest 2018 for his work on illusory research.
This special exhibition features a collection of jade made from the Warring States period to the Han Dynasty (475 BCE-220 CE), works of illusory art, as well as works of visual illusion by Professor Sugihara, the product of his scientific research. It offers some aspects of the visual effects of these two types of works that set each other apart in time for two millennia from a perspective of illusion.
