Saw the Dazzle boat on the Thames yesterday

Dazzle “consisted of complex patterns of geometric shapes in contrasting colours, interrupting and intersecting each other. It works not by offering concealment but by making it difficult to estimate a target’s range, speed and heading.”
The amazing patterns dating from the First World War really do distort your vision and are very reminiscent of some early 20th Century Paintings such as Leger’s The Constructors.
