Left eye / right eye film

3D pictures trick your brain into doing what it does all the time in the real world. Your brain thinks it is seeing two separate left and right images ans so does what it always does: combines them into one.

Teufelberg (Devils Mountain)
Flughafen Tempelhof

Outcome of Aelyn Belyn residency in Berlin in association with Katie Paterson. Shown at the Matthew Bown Gallery 14.11.10.

Rough round the edges but you get the idea of what the final film will be like - watch on mute. Final version will have no sound and will be perfectly in sync. Can be watched through stereoscopic viewer and will appear in 3D.
