Presented as a series of DIY workshops« Fabriq’Expo » allows the exploration of a wide diversity of objects through interactive modules and layouts, equipment and digital applications.

​​Optical illusions

We are all captivated, intrigued and stunned by optical illusions just as we are by magic tricks. Can you discern a young or an old lady in this trompe-l’oeil? Are those circles actually spinning or is our imagination playing a trick on us? Plunge into the world of illusions and discover the scientific phenomena that explain the secrets!
