Anderson Ranch Arts Center Artist-in-Residence Project: Binocular Rivals Mural

This mural project, realized at Anderson Ranch Arts Center, expands upon my ongoing investigation of binocular rivalry— the effect caused by 3D glasses wherein the right eye and left eye are receiving conflicting information. To the bare eye, the red and cyan images produce a dynamic retinal experience of their own. When viewed through a pair of basic anaglyph 3D glasses, the works flicker between two- and three-dimensions, background and foreground, positive space and negative space. The parts cannot be resolved as a complete whole, and the picture is at odds with itself; there is a sense of internal tension that is both bodily and psychological.
