The ‘blue and black dress’ took over the internet when people couldn’t figure out what color it actually was. The lighting and saturation of the images of the same dress makes it so confusing to figure out what color it actually is. Although it’s the same dress, the surroundings of the dress affects its representation. Same thing happens in the cube picture. The colors are the same on all the sides but due to the ‘shadow’ it creates an illusion that is might be different colors.
