Didactic Displays

I am back working on the paradoxical shadows. Instrument Six (below) proved that I could make a floating shadow (hovering in mid air and detached from the surface that it should by rights land upon), both photographically and as a direct experience. For the latter, the candles worked very beautifully but require a very dark space to work in and have practical limitations, so I am making new instruments with electric light bulbs instead. The new instruments will test a host of possibilities raised by Instrument Six.

The sculptural bones of this skeleton are heavier than those of its neighbours in the Booth Museum in Brighton – to carry the weight of the absent armour. The stereo separation is quite wide ont hese so if you are not used to viewing stereo pairs you might experience a little eye strain in trying to register them.

 

To resolve the images go cross-eyed so that one image registers over the other. Try to relax so that the full stereo depth appears. If you are having trouble, make the images smaller.
