On his website, Jerry Marks is described as an “artist working along the border were art and science join…” which is a good description of what you see when you enter his studio. Part art studio, part laboratory of perception with maybe a little mad scientist thrown in (maybe a lot) Jerry has been exploring the atistic applications of 3-D for a number of years. It’s really his passion and it comes through when he shows stereo images from the 19th century or a contemporary 3-D image experiment. Jerry’s work can be seen in books, music videos for the Rolling Stones, The 28th St. subway station, The New York Hall of Science , and theatre sets to name a few of the many projects he’s worked on . He is a accomplished 3-D silk screen printmaker, a teacher for many, many years , musican and has 3-D-ified everything from Bulwinkle to views of Venus.
At Jerry’s Feb. 14th class visit to our concepts class he presented some wonderful 3-D eye candy, a powerpoint show of anaglyph photography and comics by Kim Deitch (It’s 4D! ) Bob Sikoryak (The Lost Treasure of the 3D!) , and Micheal Kupperman (Hercules vs. Zeus)

(above top) An early virtual reality construction of the mural at the 28th st. subway . (directly above) ” 7 waves 4 twenty eight” the mural is built into glass blocks in which the curvature of the glass inside the block forms cylindrical lenses. ” Marks plans to use the lenticular (lens-like) properties of the block along with the appropriate lights, projectors, lenses, filters, in the space behind the wall to create a 3-D illusion art display. The mural will appear to move as you ride into the station”.
After the powerpoint presentation Jerry took some time to describe the process of creating an anaglyph image in photoshop. In the next week or two they’re be a follow up post with the finished 3-D images done by the class.
