Rotoreliefs


2d: Marcel Duchamp | 3d: Paula Dix

After giving up painting, Duchamp was very interested in 3D representation, a way that, combined with his linking of humor, would take him to the creation of the Ready Mades and things that looked to be something else (well, thats all what art is about, right?).

In the 1920s he created a series of 2D images that, when rotated (he used that machines which play vinyl records for that), created the impression of 3D. He called them Rotoreliefs.

I wonder what Duchamp would say about stereoscopic images like we can have on SL —— get your red and blue goggles and install Dale Viewer if you still don't know it—— http://sl.daleglass.net/
