New theories on #theDress shed light on spatial filtering

April 11, 2017

Erica L. Dixon and Arthur G. Shapiro used a series of experiments to show how the 2015 dress phenomenon may be explained by variations in a simple spatial filter that extracts relevant information from the environment.

In early 2015, a photo of a dress was posted to the blogging site Tumblr and went viral. The author of the post said that she and her friends were debating over the color of the dress – some of them saw it as blue and black and some of them saw it as white and gold. In a later post, she said that she had seen the dress in person and that it was blue and black.
