2D to 3D
Abstract | Anatomy series #2 | Astronomy | Faces
The 2D-3D graphics presented here can be viewed with or without 3D Chromadepth glasses.
Lillian Schwartz’s research began a number of years ago when she worked with art restorers in Italy to identify colors that had been lost in damaged art works, specifically frescoes by Piero Della Francesca. Working with individual pixels to determine the subtleties of the missing colors opened up other areas of study, including anatomical structures, astronomical data obtained from telescopes, and the effects of global warming. Schwartz had been simultaneously working on images for 3D and found that she could “see” much more by alternating between 2D and 3D to separate areas that needed more detailed color decisions. In addition, she has been using the 3D glasses to enhance the viewing of colors in her experimental films.
