Three-dimensional imaging is in the news again, with the recent announcement that Dreamworks will use stereoscopic technology in all its animated movies by 2009.
Get ready to put on your 3-D glasses as stereoscopic artist and imaging expert Gerald Marks takes us on a visual tour of science and nature from the dawn of photography up through the latest technology. Pictures found in the library’s collection served as inspiration for a career in 3-D and we’ll see his digital restoration of those remarkable astronomical images. Fossils, embryos, computer imagery, and a half-century of NASA’s exploration come alive in depth.
Gerald Marks has worked for more than 30 years in New York using a variety of 3D media for clients as diverse as MIT, the New York Subway and the Rolling Stones.
Seating for this talk is limited and will be available on a first come first seated basis.
