0.2.2 Alignment and distorion of peripheral view

The right eye focus’ each time at the black dots in the middle of the circles, while the left eye looks at the global image and senses new attention/reference points.

When looking for alignment a rotation movement appears due to the twirl-shape of blue pattern.

The left eye mainly uses it’s peripheral view :

Contrast , movement and low acuity

Our attention goes from the blue -> yellow, causing the twirls to turn in different directions.


Displacement of the cubes causes a narrowing effect.

This is something some Dyslexics experience because of a weak alignment.

Contrasting alignment due to vertical “wavy” black
colums and unclear gray horizontal sepearation lines
causes the optical narrowing effect

Extra yellow lines give a clearer separation between
the black & white cubes and a stronger alignment.
Result: The optical instability is reduced.

When we ad the wavy yellow lines, the optical effect slightly reapears.
We can use the same solution for having a more stable view for dyslexics with a weak peripheral view, by aplying horizontal - yellow alignment lines over a text.

Vertical alignment lines:
