SCULPTING WITH PIXELS AND PAINT

The image above is a Stereoscopic Painting - It will become three dimensional if you look at it just the right way - It is called FREE-VIEWING

How does one FREE-VIEW?

Stare at the painting and then cross your eyes so you see three images. Focus on the middle one. Relax your eyes a bit - be patient - you will lock it in like a tractor beam. Once you get it the first time it will becomes much easier. Move your head side to side and the piece will actually turn toward you.

THIS CAN BE UNCOMFORTABLE FOR SOME - ATTEMPT AT OWN RISK

HERE IS A POST FROM soad2K - He is a vision therapist.

He writes: "Everyone can actually do it, some people do have Convergence Insufficiency. But if they do, then they can use their finger or a pointer like a pencil to help achieve the effect"

If they sit approx. 18" from their monitor and then hold their finger 5" away from their face, positioning it between the two painted images focusing on the tip, and then slowly look beyond the pencil, the should see the third image. They can move the finger back or forward find perfect registration - the trick is being able to transition from finger to image. With a bit of practice, anyone has the ability to achieve this.

"If people say they see 4, they are crossing their eyes too much".

Good luck and HAVE FUN!

I still don't understand how folks can make a stereoscopic painting, but I love it nonetheless. Amazing work here!

Great Job!!

It's fascinating to see that the 3D effect works even though the images overlap. Congrats! :D

Hey, why is this one so much different than your others? With this one after a second I can actually unblur my vision and see the center image clearly and VERY 3-d! Is is the higher contrast or the dark outlining or?? Straight amazing work and quite an innovation.

Oh duh..... Now I can do it with all of them. It's easier to see the ones without as much static (simpler images) first. Sooooo cool!

WOW! This one really jumped for me! I think it's actually easier to free-view once you get the hang of it. It doesn't take long at all to get the effect now and it even seems more pronounced with this work, although I'm sure it has to do with your technique and the piece itself.
