Lightness perception

This is an awesome page:
http://www-bcs.mit.edu/gaz/

It is a paper plus animated demonstrations on humans' perception of light and dark and form and other things; it shows how by using contrast, shapes, and other tricks you can make 2 identical rectangles look like two totally different shades. Check out the flash movies; they're small and download and play very quickly, and are very cool!
