A new view on art
The C'artboard gives both eyes the same viewpoint, annulling 3D stereo vision. This makes the world around you appear ’flat’ but, counterintuitively, increases perceived depth in paintings. By removing stereo vision, your brain does not detect that the painting is physically flat. This allows you to enjoy the pictorial space that the artist created intensely.
More than a century ago, an employee of Zeiss filed a patent describing this simple but marvellous invention. Nevertheless, it was never taken into production and the patent became forgotten. During our research in depth perception, we stumbled upon an unexpected side effect of this synopter: it turned out an incredibly interesting way of viewing at art. This is why we, 109 years after the patent filing, finally decided to turn it into production.
