I wrote an essay (published here) for The Huffington Post concerning my long-simmering collaboration w/an experimental group at the New York Public Library that peaked today w/the launch of the Stereogranimator, a website application that lets anyone explore & share 3D mashups of the library’s stereograph collection à la my Reaching for the Out of Reach.
If that isn’t cool enough (then who are you? Cary Grant?), The New York Times did an ArtsBeat piece about the project today. I couldn’t be happier.
My work may have inspired this app but the NYPL Labs team is visionary. & this is all to say… go click, share & get lost in these funny flickering things!

"What Big Media Can Learn From the New York Public Library" (article here)
Alexis Madrigal, a senior editor at The Atlantic, mentioned my ongoing Reaching for the Out of Reach project & linked to cursivebuildings.com yesterday in a real interesting article on all the good things NYPL is doing w/its archives. Rad! So happy to play a part in these important discussions. Back when this project first gained notice on a large scale, the library contacted me out of the blue &, to my surprise, were very supportive of the endeavor (… as I hadn’t exactly asked permission to re-imagine their archived stereographs). It’s great to see them get positive press in response to their initiative on this matter.
ps. Interesting topic? A previous, related post.
