Stereoscopic Music Video

Being a visual artist, I love optical illusions. One that still fascinates me is the stereoscopic image.

Although it is challenging to "see" at first, once you figure out how to view a stereogram, you can do it at will.

By slightly un-focusing & crossing your eyes, you can make a pair of images overlap within your visual field to form a 3D image.

This music video for "Black is Good", by Young Rival, uses stereoscopy to achieve moving, 3-D forms out of what appears to be random static.

For best results, practice the technique on stereoscopic still images first- then watch the video in HD.

Young Rival also had another captivating video for "Two Reasons", with a series of entertaining face paintings:
