I made one!

So I downloaded a program that allows me to make SIRDs…. here’s the first sample one I made.  Can you see what the image is?

It’s actually a little complicated to get the right balance, it seems, but I’m playing

The Cos/ SIRDs

This is an SIRD image we generated online. Unfortunately, the end of the word is cut off.

Last night, we went for an adventure and went out in Blairmore.  We went to The Cos (The Cosmopolitan) in downtown Blairmore.  The girls (Latifa and her sister, who is currently visiting) had never really been to a small town bar, and I think it was an interesting experience for them.  For me, it was a bit of a trip down Nostalgia Lane.  I gre up in a little town, and while the bar was not the same bar, it definitely had the same vibes and patterns, and felt like home.  Lol.  I was thinking a lot about my high school friends, and that point in my life.

Anyway, I must admit that I haven’t been feeling too motivated lately.  While we have been playing with a few things, I’ve been feeling a little stuck.  I’ve been playing with a little of the video I’ve been collecting, and, honestly, avoiding the 3d.  But I have been doing a bit of research, and I think maybe today I’ll play with an open source program I got, Blender (which is a “3D content creation suite”), which hopefully I can use to see if I can use it to develop a couple of SIRDs, (Single Image Random Dot Stereograms) we’ve been wanting to create (like a Magic Eye).

And here’s a link to a moving SIRD! Exciting!

Stereoscopic vs. Anaglyphic

 

This is an example of a sample I have been working on, which we will get printed to see how it works (hopefully).

So, if you’ve been “perceptive,” you may have noticed that Latifa and I are working with a theme of “Perception.”  We’ve been doing a lot of research on Stereoscopic and Anaglyphic images.

For example, stereoscopic images are when each eye is presented with a slightly different image, and the brain puts the two together, tricking you into thinking you are actually seeing 3D.  I’m sure you’re familiar with these- We remember the Magic Eye posters on the walls of elementary school classrooms.

I wonder, is this Charlie?

Here’s a couple of links to see what I mean.

Anaglyphic images are images where two differently colored images are superimposed on top of each other.  This is an example of one I made yesterday…. You will need 3D glasses to view these properly…

Here’s another 3D image that I made…. If you look at it cross eyed, you’ll see that the Z’s are in the foreground, and the X’s are in the background.  This has to do with the spacing between things.

We’ve also discovered a generator…!
