So, back in the day (1990 or so) I used to love stereograms. I even had a company that made the software that allowed people to make highly complex hidden image stereograms. I also made dozens of them myself. My brother-in-law was the real pro. His work even made the cover of Duckman Comics #1.
I took a picture the other day that reminded me of my old efforts; a channel with holes along its length. I spent some time cutting and arranging it in Photoshop and... Well you can see the result above, a stereo image of a series of holes. If you shift your vision slightly, the image will take on three-dimensional qualities. It has been at least ten years since I made something like this. I think I will make a few more in the days ahead. Its fun and appeals to the autistic side of my brain (yes I said autistic on purpose - I find great comfort in repetitive tasks, like sorting pennies or debugging software).
