Forbidden City: Perspective
Printed on fabric, 27"x 60", this is also a 3D anaglyph, hinting at the scale of the Forbidden City Palace in Beijing. The near objects "float" in front of the picture space.
As with my 3D prints in general, I take two pictures separated by the width of one's eyes, then make anaglyphs of them in software.
It's possible to control to some extent whether parts of the image extend "in front" of the picture-plane towards the viewer or whether they are contained "behind" the picture frame. This image has a dramatic extension towards the viewer.
This appeared in my Cal Poly Downtown Center Show in 2004.
The show is up through January.
