Depth perception is the visual ability to perceive the world in three dimensions and the distance of an object. Many animals, including humans, have two eyes with overlapping visual fields that use parallax to gain depth perception; this process is known as stereopsis.
Due to the parallax effect, objects in the distance appear to move slower than the objects close to the viewpoint.
Work by Nikhil Shrestha and Kuldeep Gohel
A 3D wireframe of a Tesseract was built as the skeleton of the structure which was 6*6 feet. Tracing paper was used to make the surfaces on which the projection would be mapped.
Symmetrical and asymmetrical lines perform an almost ritualistic dance on the angled surfaces of the outer cube while the inner cube constructed 3 feet behind, plays a slower time projection to create the effect of parallax. Witnessing this from the front disorientates the viewer and causes an illusion of the parallax effect.
