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…!

Bellevue Mine Part II

I am tired.
I have been drawing for many hours. It feels nice. My paper is so giant, it could crush me at any moment.

I think also my cottage is haunted, possibly by Charlie the horse. There are strange noises like things are falling but everything is normal. I keep getting this creeped out feeling. I am afraid to turn out the lights.
haha.
anyhow, I will add some photos of the mine. I wish I could have gone in deeper. I feel like I only got just one particle of a sugar cube. A sweet taste leaving a longing for more.
At least I got a piece of historic coal for feng shui and burning purposes.

Day One – Jen

I am so tired.

Today was a bit of a crazy day, but that might have been compounded by not sleeping well last night (in anticipation of today), “Fresh Mountain Air” as Latifa says, and all the excitement and stress of meeting new people, making sure we were in the right places, etc, etc. etc.  Did I mention I didn’t sleep well last night?

Anyway, onto the good stuff.  As I said, today was a crazy day.  I met Latifa when she picked me up this morning, at my house, and after a quick breakfast stop at Timmie’s, we were on our way!  One wrong turn and two hours later, we met Mike at the Art Gallery in Frank, in the Crowsnest Pass.  Latifa and I had gone in just to kill time and check out the gallery, and met up with Mike in the parking lot, and he said, “Oh, you must have met Krisztina, then?” It had never even occurred to me to introduce myself, we had mostly just gone in to kill time.  It seems that, in my five years in Calgary, (and Montreal before that), I have forgotten the quirks of small town life.  It won’t be long before people in the Pass know who we are, and try as we might, we’ll only manage to remember a few.

After we got all moved in, we took a walk through downtown Blairmore, and then Mike took us for a bit of a driving tour of four of the five towns that make up the Pass.  We are staying in the Gushul Studio and Writer’s Cottage, so Blairmore is our home base.  Not far down the road in either direction are the four other towns: Coleman, Frank, Bellevue, and the Hillcrest Mines.  And not much farther away is Lundbreck, home of the waterfall of many of my childhood memories.  I had forgotten exactly how much rock there is from the Frank Slide…. If you look at the map, you can see the swish of grey, the field of rubble.  And each of those stones are huge.

After getting some groceries and making some dinner at Latifa’s, I decided to take the night to relax and get used to my surroundings.  I made a nice cup of tea and talked to Brad on Skype. I think now, I’m maybe going to read one of the books I brought with me…. a “Bargain Bin Special” called “Downtown Owl,” (Chuck Klosterman) which I thought might be appropriate for the occasion.  The book is about Owl, a small town in North Dakota, and the strange quirks small towns seem to have.  It really reminds me of home.

Anyway, all is good, just settling in! Stay tuned!
