3D (ANAGLYPH) IMAGES These photographically-based images are really about different ways of seeing and how the brain can play tricks on vision. When viewed through (inexpensive paper) red-cyan glasses, pictures shot with this three-dimensional effect look surreal, with the method selectively accentuating surprising and unexpected aspects. Sights, scenes and textures stand out more than they do in real life. Yet after a while, the 'photographs' becomes immersive and surrounding, involving onlookers until they become participants. The longer one looks, the more pervasive the sense becomes. Effectively, the presentation becomes a low-tech virtual reality environment.
