Fabulas...great to see this kind of stuff...!
 
I guess it was hard to make the 2...they should of add one or subtract one on the other side .. But still beside the math I'm impress ...that's pretty neat 
 
Somebody's got a lot of time on their hands, and a lot of shit laying around. It is impressive though! 
 
so 1+1=2;
I think +ILLUSION is great....
ILLUSION is not math actually it's illusion....
 
It could be true in everything but maths ;)
 
This was amazing XD
VKL HD
 
muy bueno....
 
But those aren't normal ones... Those are heavy ones, hence 1 + 1 = 3
 
fucking creators ! dont have any work
 
Wow that is an awful lot of work to realize that the message was wrong...
 
I like how everyone is more interested on how they did there math wrong than the real illusion cuz my illusion is why 1+1 is now equal to 3.... Hmmmm
 
That's wavy but 1 + 1 doesn't equal 3.WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
1 + 1 = 3 for very large values of 1
 
In this world, you have to choose what is real and what is merely an illusion...and work with them both to craft something original and cool btw thts really cool ....
 
It's done but a bunch of random objects so it must be true
 
1±1 don,t come up to 3 it comes to 2
 
who cares if the math is correct that is a very well thought out visual effect!
 
This was so beautiful, I cried!
 
Yup one plus one is two its take time figure out out this equation 
 
that,s not true how does 1+1 become three 
 
Think angle! What look good from one angle looks like a pile of trash from another.
 
All that work setting that stuff up, and they didn't even get the math right. Not worth the trouble.
 
Huh, guess that means I've had pelnty of treesomes then.
 
I was always correct and they told me 1+1=2....
 
Awesome illusion! Could you please tell me how to get follower in Google+?
 
I would enjoy this illusion more if their math wasn't so bad.  It bugs me every time I look at it.
 
If it is, the one who did the editing remembered to add shadows.in the right direction. :)

What I'm curious about is what counting system they're using. Base 3 or Base Pulling my Leg? :)
 
is that even real or fake i mean the top pic
 
El lugar donde estemos ubicados como observadores nos cambia la imagen que percibamos de los objetos, la imagen en cuestión no es asunto de matemáticas es cuestión de perspectiva que no deja de ser real, buen ejercicio, la de arriba sería una vista frontal y la de abajo sería una imagen en perspectiva isómetrica, mas o menos 30 grados de inclinación sobre el horizonte, que no los da, corrijo, mas bien perspectiva a dos puntos de fuga...

1+1 =3, for extremely large values of 1 :)
 
You may have seen this little proof that 2=1:

     a = x               [true for some a's and x's]
   a+a = a+x          [add a to both sides]
    2a = a+x           [a+a = 2a]
 2a-2x = a+x-2x     [subtract 2x from both sides]
2(a-x) = a+x-2x      [2a-2x = 2(a-x)]
2(a-x) = a-x           [x-2x = -x]
     2 = 1               [divide both sides by a-x]

So if 2=1 then you can also get 1=1=3
:)
 
Alternate dimension, new laws of physics, oh what might be out there. 
 
1+1=3 for large values of 1!
Old calculus joke!
 
Do they have a video of this?
 
Lol took me a lil min to know what was going on. But I get it now
 
1+1 = 3 mean husband+wife->husband+wife+baby :P
 
Um............... Ok, exactly how old are you, ILLUSION?
I need to know the reason behind your wrong answer.
 
I want to make one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Todo en la vida es una ilusión, sobre todo el dinero.

Oh my goodness, people! It's ART! Stop taking it so literally! Many artists (if not all) will tell you, one of the greatest reasons for creating any art, is to challenge the observers perceptions. To lead the observer to question what they see, think, feel and/or, believe.

You all immediately jump to the notion that 1+1=3 is wrong mathematically but, look at the context of the image and you might see a way that 1+1=3 is correct. What are all of these objects indicative of? How about day to day life? Maybe the day to day life of a couple? Take the thought further. Many couples at some point, through one means or another, bring a third being into the picture. Looked at in this way, 1+1 does in fact equal 3.

How about not even getting that deep? How about just looking at it like this. This collection of stuff when viewed or perceived in one way seems random, without order, perhaps meaningless. But, if the observer only shifts their point of view or the way they perceive the pile, they see a clear message. That message itself being another way of saying that things are not always as they may appear.

Think people! Use your heads for more than a hat rack! Look beyond the obvious. Ask yourself questions like, "is there something more" and then, search for the answer. Who knows, you might just learn a little something. Something about yourself even. And perhaps, just perhaps, grow a little in the process.
 
1+1=2, the person who made this must have been retarded
 
i agree with u , u r the upcoming scientist & am ur partner, next wt we gonna find ?
 
Now that's amazing!!!!!!!!
 
Someone hasnt neglected large values of 1...interesting
 
1+1=3 is a clean saying for bullshit look at the bottom pic you'll say bullshit that ain't that 1+1=BULLSHIT
 
New trinity ....1+1=3
because the old trinity is 1+1+1=1
 
Math is like life. It's way more complicated then you think it is.
 
that is so cool. its like the channel four ad
 
More accurately, if 2(a-x)=a-x, and the given is a=x, then you really get 2(0)=0, which is 0=0. 
 
it is illusion cool stuff i sturdy it for quiet a while before getting it it really cool 
 
Didnt get it at first! This is awesome!!
 
Shouldn't that be 11? as in eleven? :)
 
True in Binary (but that's cheating), as well as "for very high values of 1" (where you're using 1 sf accuracy, 1 could be up to 1.49999999 etc. adn 1.49999 + 1.49999 ~=3)
 
This would be a lot more impressive if they understood basic mathematics. 
 
+Alex Mason 1+1=3 as in 1 man + 1 woman = 2 parents and 1 kid.  It's been on umpteen million honeymoon getaway cars.
 
Math has nothing to do with this ... it's Art and the sum of the parts is lesser than the whole. So 3 is actually correct.
 
An art is always right. It gives a damn to maths and science.   So, 1+1=3.   :)
 
Thts not even right 1+1=2

All this effort to prove 1 + 1 = 3? Whyyyyyy?????

Brain disfunction!!!
 
It is binary..so 1+1 does equal 3.
 
this is funky yet very weird at first glance
 
niceeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
clear example of how can u see one thing in 2 wayss, and perceive it differently at the same timee!!
 
Ok I thought I'd get a really smart answer or I overlooked something, did the artist make the mistake? Anyway I've spent far too much time on it now and I'm actually boring myself and you if you have even read this far.....soz :)
 
Makes no sense from either side.
 
1 persona + 1 persona = bebe xD
 
The second number is actually two 1s if you look it carefully. One of the 1s is upside down. So yeah, the answer is not 2 or 3 but 12 (1 + 11).

It's too bad, they did all that work and it turned out the equation was wrong.

Not necessarily bad math.
Shop near me has a special offer. Buy 1 + 1 and get 1 free (= 3)

Wow that's completely awesome.
 
it is right  but everyone saying it wrong.

This is cool. But what will make it better is to show this in video.
 
What they don't get is....math is also an illusion.

you just made me love math more

Amazing....
But the answer is wrong...
Ha Ha..
 
For rather large values of one...
1,4 + 1,4 = 2,8 = 3!
 
=3 um last time I checked....
 
i don't know about you, but i always thought that 1 + 1 = 2.....
 
It doesn't work in math but, works in business its called synergy.
 
they could have at least TRIED to do a correct math equation
