We've tugged your sleeve to the artistry of Miggs Burroughs before, here and here.

Obviously, his work holds special appeal for 3D fans due to his use of the lenticular format. But that's not the only reason we urge our audience to go, if they can.

Here, lenticular, the format is in service of Art (whatever you conceive that to be), not advertising, novelty or promotion. Corporations shouldn't be the only ones producing high quality lenticular images, should they?

With today's digital image work flow an artist can use the photographic lenticular to produce a scene for strictly aesthetic purposes. And with a GIF file (thank you CompuServe) you can display your art on the web.

"You are enlisted as a critical collaborator who controls the speed, sequence and ultimately, the meanings of these very short 'movies.' " Miggs Burroughs told the Connecticut Post's Christina Hennessy, in her article, "A Moving Experience."

Perhaps the success of Burroughs' work will convince other artists and photographers to try this demanding format? We hope so, but for now the competition is few and far between. So many people hurling paint on canvas, so few processing lenticular files on their PC's. Sigh.

If anyone in our audience knows of other contemporary artists using large scale lenticular formats, please clue us in. We'll try and get the word out on them as well.

And I have to finish by saying how much I love the concept of art lenticulars as 'very short movies.'
