Ambiguities of the Third Dimension

Thesis, Winnipeg Canada



exhibition architecture


Two different views of the same chair are projected onto a virtual model in the computer. The surfaces catch the images according to the angle. By rendering and printing out the surfaces the model can be assembled.

The relation between the viewpoint of a person, the picture and the model creates either the completed image of the chair or the distorted image.

This constructed perspective is filmed from one viewpoint. By rotating the chair, which is constructed to fit the perspective, the illusion of the perspective dissolves.

The threshold, between when we think it fits and not, is very subtle. It is this neither/nor, either/or situation which interests me.
