New York 3D Variety Show

Art and Technology of Stereoscopic Imagery

PAST EVENT

New York Stereoscopic Association Presents! Most images will be visible in 3D. Each week there are presentations of 3D technology, art, history and an after party of free discussion.

This week's guest is Susan Barry.

Dubbed “Stereo Sue” by neurologist Oliver Sacks in a New Yorker article by that name, Sue Barry has gone on to write her own book "Fixing My Gaze" which describes the astonishing experience of gaining 3D stereovision after a lifetime of seeing in only two dimensions. Intensive vision therapy created new neural connections, and with them, a new view of the world. Challenging conventional wisdom that the brain is programmed for life during a critical period in childhood, Barry offers a poignant and revelatory account of our capacity for change.

In 2021, Sue published a second book: COMING TO OUR SENSES: A Boy Who Learned to See, A Girl Who Learned to Hear, and How We All Discover the World.

A regular segment is Joe Pedoto's Anaglyph Jukebox: the fascinating history behind anaglyph media, usually comic books. Now we are able to show these in 3D here in Altspace.

This meeting is interactive. Most of the time the speakers and members are appearing on a Zoom screen. You will be able to grab the mike so you can talk to the people in Zoom.

While most of the time our content would be suitable for broadcast on children's hours network TV, occasionally it's not. Altspacevr suggested we say "Warning: this may contain content that some individuals might view as Mature"
