Use 77th st. entrance, bear left past the big canoe and then right, through to the end of the hall of molluscs.
Gerald Marks presents highlights from more than 25 years as a stereo artist. A display of anaglyph silk screen prints and lenticular images will accompany the featured program of 3D television work shown on two large monitors. Viewing glasses will be supplied.
Diatoma, an illustration created by Gerald Marks for the book Virtual Reality by H. P. Newquist, Scholastic Publications, 1995. A photo of a microscopic diatom was used to seed the basic shape of the mountains.
Gerald Marks’s 3D creations are seen in museums around the world. The New York Hall of Science exhibits his Professor Pulfrich's Universe 3D shadow room as well as the hologram he created at the MIT Media Lab for the Hall's Realm of the Atom area. The original Professor Pulfrich's Universe has been a popular exhibit at San Francisco's Exploratorium for two decades and was also at the IBM Gallery in New York. His recent work in 3D television programming includes music videos for The Rolling Stones and a series for Venezuelan television. His quasi-lenticular 3D mural has been in the 28th Street Park Avenue South subway station (#6 train) for the past 3 years. See his 3D website http://www.pulltime3d.com
After the talk there will be some announcements, then our usual informal show-and-tell when members share their own work in viewers or on bulletin boards around the room.
Free and open to the public.
