How the Victorians invented 3D
Run time: 14.30 – 16.00
The use of 3D imaging feels like a modern invention. However, we can track its inception and scientific origins right back to the Victorian era.
For a long time, scientists have been experimenting with how our eyes create images of the world, developing tools and optical devices like the kaleidoscope and the stereoscope to bend and manipulate the world around us.
Join John Plunkett to experiment with visual perception yourself. Explore his selection of 19th century devices using pictures from the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum and try your hand at taking your own 3D image.
