Schrödinger’s Sleeveface

This has thrown a schism into Sleeveface land. It’s definitely an illusion involving a record sleeve. But does it meet the strict definition?

Let’s assume all you need is a person obscured – totally – and it would meet the definition of a Sleeveface. The person does not have to be visible. They could be hiding. But!

We can’t be sure if there actually is a person behind the sleeve, unless we disrupt the Sleeveface to check.

One comment on “Schrödinger’s Sleeveface”

  1. Well, the cat must be Schrödinger’s. As long as we do not look, we can be comfortable knowing that there is a person there- whom I suppose must therefore be “Schrödinger’s cat’s person”.
