Two Faced Art

Lenticular printing is a technology in which a lenticular lens is used to produce images with an illusion of depth, or the ability to change or move as the image is viewed from different angles. Most of us have seen postcards printed in this fashion and though it is a rather old printing technique, we all still seem to be fascinated by the effect and often stand slack jawed as we shift the image back and forth. Swiss designers Drzach & Suchy have taken this process to new artistic levels with their “Shadow Casting Panel” art. Rather than twisting the position of the art to change the visible image, they have devised a way to completely change the image by simply changing the light source. During the day you get one image, and at night you get a completely different image. What a fun way to confound the stupid people in your life and get two pieces of art for the price of… pricing has yet to be announced.
