Paradoxical Shadows

The stereoscopic view of the submarine interior above is very similar to the one that revealed the possibility of making paradoxical shadows that float in mid air – the earlier version was a portrait frame but these are landscape and have a sharper floating shadow. Go cross-eyed so that similar elements int he photographs register with each other and then relax until the full three dimensional image resolves itself. Then look just below the periscope handle for the floating shadow.


The top image is of Instrument Six that makes such floating shadows, both photographically and in real time (as shown here, working with candles for a light source).
