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)
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.

"Since settling in on the red planet, the Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and Opportunity have sent back a number of 3-D postcards to countless fans outfitted in red- and blue-tinted spectacles. To some, the realistic pictures of the rocky martian terrain may seem magical, but the concept behind the illusion is in fact quite simple.
"Basically, 3-D pictures trick your brain into doing what it does all the time in the real world," says Zareh Gorjian, a graphic artist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory who makes 3-D pictures and animations of Mars for a living, both the black-and-white kind and the more advanced color versions.
The key to 3-D imaging lies in simulating a left and right eye. For the Mars Exploration Rovers, this is accomplished with the aid of a left and right camera eye. Images from the rovers' stereo camera lenses (either the hazard-avoidance cameras, the navigation cameras or the panoramic cameras) are tinted in red and blue, then merged into one blurred picture, which pops off the page when viewed through a pair of red- and blue-tinted glasses.
"Your brain thinks it is seeing two separate left and right images and so does what it always does -- combines them into one picture," says Gorjian."
