Remember those 3-D movies, the ones that you had to wear the cardboard glasses to see? This definitive book brings it all back, but from the standpoint of serious artists, designers and anyone else interested in the origins of visual phenomena. With his figure and stereo experiments, author Jurg Nanni guides the reader through the mysterious cosmos of visual perception. The included eyeglasses allow exceptional optical experiences, complemented by interactive experiments on the included CD-ROM. Texts, visual examples and CD-experiments allow readers to acquire the background information for their own creative work, and to answer the questions: How do optical illusions emerge? And how can our eyes be fooled at all?
