Optical illusion: 'Mind of the Eye' Poster

I've been working on a optical illusion poster recently inspired from Bridget Riley's 'Current' painting. I must say it was difficult designing this because my eyes did tend to hurt while working on this but one of the reasons I wanted to create this poster was to break the rules of Legibility, overall I think it worked. What do you think?

Bridget Riley- Optical Illusion

Bridget Riley is one of many practitioners that I get inspiration from. What I enjoy about her work is how something flat (2D) can turn into movement. I found this clip that describes her work.

Her Work

My favorite painting from Riley is 'Current' because it feels active, vibrate and shows movement by the juxtaposition of the black and white. Also liked how the artist expresses composure and disturbance at the same time. Each time I look at it it defy attention for instance the moment they are focused upon they disappear. They are extremely elusive things. This piece remind me of life in a way, visual sensations that pass you by in a day to day life that you can't see at that time but at the end you feel something has happened, although you can't actually name it.
