Inspired by mid-19th century artist, inventor, and optician Louis Jules Duboscq, this series of works plays with the notion of being able to see in stereo.
Starting with simple geometric shapes found in Duboscq’s stereoscopic engravings and lithographs, I recontextualize the shapes using different 3D viewing techniques. A viewmaster reel, anaglyph photographs, intaglio prints designed to be seen through stereoscope goggles, and 3D printed line drawings that work as cross-eyes stereographs. Whether one is successful at seeing the images in 3D is less important than the willingness to experience the variety of low-tech mediated images.
3D stereograph line drawings created in collaboration with Nick Yarnell.
