back to past work ANAMORPHOSIS 1976-80

The Renaissance expression of corrected perspective became an important photographic subject.

In these, the cat passed over the corrected geometric perspective drawings on the floor, but the resulting photographs made him appear to be inside them.

Such perceptual conundrums I also applied to film and video. "Reality Is…" "Perception Projects" and "Pilot Fish" were experimental videos produced in 1976-1977 in collaboration with the video research department at the Musee Georges Pompidou, Paris.

Note: These photographs are not retouched or "sandwiched". They are all taken at 1/4 of a second and there is no double exposure. Obviously, Adobe Photoshop did not exist in the 1970's...
