WATCHING A GORA DRIVE BY WHILE TAKING A PEE

(2017, antique stereo viewer, stereo slide, Plexi glass, LEDs, iron pipe, Goethe bust optional)



Watching a Gora drive by while taking a Pee presents a stereo slide in an antique stereo viewer, created from  two consecutive video frames. Shot on the road between New Delhi and Agra, only these two stills formed a perfect pair with the proper offset to create an optical 3D illusion.  


Afterthought: the man, when turning his head, ever so slightly changed the direction of his discharge, leaving behind a trace of urine salts that will tell a future archaeologist about a distraction from his fleeting business.
