3-D Wiggle-Vision

Via BoingBoing I found this groovy faux 3-D site. It’s a brilliant fusion of the old “winky” lenticular concept with digital cameras and the web: Burning Man Opera Ark of the Nereids. I didn’t find a “how we did this” page, but it looks like you just need to mount two digital cameras next to each other and snap them at the same time. Low tech + high tech = average height tech. Very nice. Some of the pictures are more compelling than others. I particularly liked the one near the bottom of the bell car. You really get the sense of bouncing along in a vehicle next them. The difference between this and a single still picture is dramatic. The general weirdness of the photographic subject matter adds to the otherworldliness of the pictures. I want to go to Burning Man.
