I need to create a Keynote (6.5.2) presentation for school that contains text and no graphics, but implicit silliness is highly encouraged. As such, I was thinking of having some fun with current events and finding a way to reference The Dress. I was wondering, can anyone come up with a way to make that optical illusion happen in Keynote?

I'm willing to play with the slide color scheme, the colors over a progression of slides, and/or the text color. My one condition is that the text always has to be legible.

(Yes, I know the science behind the illusion is that it's all about the color context, but I'm still holding out hope for a way to be able to poke fun at it via a Keynote presentation. Anyone who figures out how will earn my undying gratitude!)

  • Wouldn't the dress be considered a graphic? How do you make a Keynote presentation of an optical illusion without images; will you be representing the dress through "slides" of sounds? – Zero Feb 28 '15 at 7:56
  • I have slide backgrounds and I have words. I don't plan to put the dress in there. I'm asking about if there's a way to mess around with the color scheme of the presentation to create the same perceived color discrepancy that's present in the picture of the dress. – user24601 Feb 28 '15 at 8:00
