Stimuli Sets


The Validated Circular Shape Space (VCS Space)

We created the first perceptually uniform “Shape Wheel” whereby angular distance on a 2D circle is a proxy for visual similarity, comparable to the commonly used “color wheel”. Shapes located closer in angular distance are more visually similar compared to shapes located further away, a property that is true anywhere on circular space.
