Examining Our World in 3-D: The Art and Science of Stereoscopic Imaging by Gerald Marks

November 16, 1908 Max Wolf (collection NYPL)

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007, 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Science, Industry, & Business Library (SIBL)

Admission Free (but seating is limited!)

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.

Magic and Murder at the Candy Factory: The Story of Anna Sula
by Christopher Schneberger

Chicago in the Great Depression. One of the few treats people could afford was "penny candy." As a result, the National Candy Company was not only afloat, but able to hire.

Artists 'draw on air' to create 3D illustrations


"By putting on a virtual reality mask, holding a stylus in one hand and a tracking device in the other, an artist can draw 3D objects in the air with unprecedented precision. This new system is called 'Drawing on Air,' and researchers have designed the interface to be intuitive and provide the necessary control for artists to illustrate complicated artistic, scientific, and medical subjects." – from Physorg.com
