Gianni A. Sarcone is a passionate interdisciplinary author and artist with more than twenty years of experience in the fields of visual creativity.
His artworks and feature articles on educational topics and creative thinking are published and syndicated in magazines, newspapers, and books. Sarcone has written several books on brain games, critical thinking, and on the mechanism of vision.
G. Sarcone acknowledges himself as a 'visual illusionist' or a 'curiosity promoter'. He likes to combine visual art, psychology, cognitive sciences, and logic paradoxes to test people's ingenuity and to prompt the curious to look beyond what seems obvious, to think and to see outside of the box.
He has co-founded with Marie-Jo Waeber the Archimedes' Laboratory™ Project (www.archimedes-lab.org), an interactive and entertaining site that provides online tutoring, educational content and activities to stimulate the mind and the imagination of the visitors (the website was quoted by Scientific American as follows: "This virtual lab borrows the empirical spirit and creative curiosity that Archimedes brought to his work and invites visitors to explore with the same expectations for mind-blowing discovery" - May 27, 2003).
Widely considered as a leading authority on visual perception, Sarcone was a juror at the Third Annual "Best Visual Illusion of the Year Contest" held in Sarasota, Florida (USA). His optical illusion project 'Mask of Love' was named in the top ten best optical illusions in the "2011 Best Illusion of the Year Contest" held in Naples, Florida (USA).
In his spare time, he likes to practice martial arts (taekwondo and jujitsu) and cooking for friends.
Gianni Sarcone's quote:
"A world without problems is an illusion, so is a world without solutions"
