MOIRE MIRRORS

Self initiated

2018

 

Playing with imperfect alignments, a small displacement,

rotation or difference in period to make interference patterns

occur that lead to the impression

of a three-dimensional effect.

 Moiré patterns are not really there; they are an optical illusion created in the image in your eye.

A slight motion in one of the objects creates large-scale changes in the moiré pattern.

These patterns can be used to demonstrate wave interference, but also the illusion of a three-dimensional depth in the relationship between human, object and motion.
