artist jadikan has created the pattern for a DIY stereo viewer, which allows viewers to visualize light painting in 3-D. ‘solid one‘ is a downloadable and printable device, whose lenses permit the multi-dimentional appearance of an otherwise static photograph. using the medium of light to paint compositions and graphics in mid-air (with a technique that requires the rapid movement of a light source in front of a camera) jadikan has formed a series of prints which can be seen through the hand-held, constructed unit.
the form draws inspiration from that of a stereo camera: a type of picture-taking device with two or more lenses — each with a separate image sensor — allowing it to simulate three-dimensional images. together with photographer jean-francois delamarre, jadikan presents 8 stereo photographs with lightpainting. each artworks have been taken with a voigtländer stereflektoskop and medium format color slide. the original digital film is cut and reassemblated between 2 glass slice, creating a double image ready to be placed in a stereo viewer and be seen as a diorama.
