Evaluation

Final eveluation of project 3.

Overall I have really enjoyed this project, it was a chance for me to explore a medium that was completely new to me. Film photography, specifically medium format, and the lomography aesthetic have very truthful messages of the need for both the “old” and the “new”. It was expected that digital photography would wipe out film photography, however in recent years we have seen a resurgence of film. I believe the old and the new forms of photography compliment one another, instead of destroying each other they form a relationship that makes both stronger. The same can be said for my remedeation technique of ”Stereography” or the art of making 3-D images. Even though the technology has greatly advanced in 3-D imaging there is still examples of the techniques used when stereograms first became popular in the late 18th century. Having both the old and the new makes both experiences stronger as the advantages of one cover the disadvantages of the other and visa versa. My images and the method of their presentation in the form of a classic style stereoscope as well as state of the art 3-D Stereo-environment display show the importance of this relationship between the old and the new and is evidence that we need both forms. Perhaps the most important thing this project has taught me is that to completely eliminate the old would be a great loss to the new.

This is my template to be lazer cut into 1mm thick PETG (clear flexible plastic). The Stereoscope is inspired from the Holmes design, has a removable handle and is adjustable to a degree. I wanted my stereo viewer to be made to &#8220;pack flat&#8221; and mass producable but at the same time reduce wastage and be functional. There is no tape or glue required as I have designed it to hold together strongly with tabs and folds.

These are my digitalised images taken with two holga&#8217;s rigged together. As with the Holga esthetic the timing is never exact for fast moving images such as the one obove however I beleieve this adds the effect. Things I took into consideration in taking the images was:
- large range of depths, such as near and far objects.
- overlaping objects
- moving objects.
- other than that I emersided myself into lomo culture and snapped whatever I came across.

An allsortment of my test rigs and mock up viewers. In the end I used the above rig (with the Interpupilary Distance, IPD, at human equivalent) for shooting half my shots then I swapped to a side by side rig with a larger IPD for Hyperstereoscopes, increased 3D depth but has a miniaturising effect.

Scroll down till you reach the lens section. The 4 inch Focal length lenses are the ones that I have had to cut out of a Tool CD case, ($30.00 NZD for $1.67 USD lenses) but time is money so it thats alright and 30 bucks is a small price to pay if it means I get a working stereograph viewer. For those interested in making there own stereograph viewers then I recommend being very organised and getting the lenses from this site and allowing for shipping time.

If I had more time I would get some of these from America, for this project I’ll be making my own.
