The source of these 3D Anaglyph artworks is Google Art Project. The project, which is an extension of Google Street View, allows users to “explore a wide range of artworks at brushstroke level detail, take a virtual tour of a museum and even build their own collections to share”
While taking virtual tours of these Museums, I utilize 3D Mode— a functionality originally intended for GSV use— and take screenshots of canonical artworks. Afterwards, I remove the artworks from their Museum environments, using photoshop, and then enlarge them to the actual dimensions of the original pieces. Lastly, I project them onto gallery walls, giving them second lives as Virtual Bootlegs.
