A counterexample to the rigidity assumption in the visual perception of structure from motion

Abstract. It has been proposed that the human visual system prefers perceptions of objects that are rigid or undergo minimum form change.

It is argued that this perception results from the stimulation of automatic processes for perceiving size change, and that these processes are not subject to a general rigidity assumption.
