Reaching Out for the Out of Reach

Joshua Heineman of Cursive Buildings has been collecting and altering archived images from the New York Public Library. He makes them wiggle, which creates a three-dimensional effect. You’ll have to click the link to see what I’m trying to explain. In the short term, the pictures seem to come to life. If you stare at any one of them too long, you may become dizzy.

I made a few of my own, with reasonable success. Take two pictures, moving the camera horizontally about 4" between shots. Aim at a point in the center, about halfway between the nearest and furthest object. Use an app like PaintShopPro Animation Shop to make a GIF that toggles between them at about 10 frames a second. Done.

Fantastic stuff. I wish I could make all the photographs in the History textbooks I teach with do this. I think the kids would love it. How hard is it to do? Could an 'ordinary' blogger do it? I'm a humanities gal and clueless about technology / science.

There is a similar and very disturbing collection of animated gifs of vintage stereoscopic images of skin diseases at
