Neurovirtual Space III
A stereogram needs to be flat to work, right? That's what I always believed, until I proved myself wrong with this stereosculpture, first developed as part of a public art proposal for a large research, office and commercial building in Singapore.
The content of the stereogram is not very exciting, but I really like the concept: a real structure that, when viewed as a stereogram, takes on a different form in space, which intersects the real form, making it disappear, so to speak. And viewing the sculpture from different angles results in different stereograms as well.
The images below are stills from an applet that lets you walk around the stereosculpture and view it from different directions. The huge pillar (2.6m diameter and about 17m high) is part of the building, standing in an atrium that spanned three levels. What turns it into a stereogram are the ten radial fins (green in this simulation). The two lighter bands next to the pillar represent the balustrades of Levels 2 and 3.
Such a big stereogram could have only been viewed with cross-eyed viewing, but for this simulation parallel viewing works just as well.
