This series of steroscopes is an attempt to represent the moments when we disregard the visual reality because we are plunged into our thoughts. We meet in a kind of « double perception«.
As in the first version of the stereoscopes I made Vanity both images are different and the brain of the viewer devellops an image which does not exist.
In this series, the right image is a drawing which represents the mental image, it’s overlapping the left image : a picture which represents the visual reality.

Since I started working on the mental images topic I was searching for a way to represent the moments when we disregard the visual reality because we are lost in our thoughts. We found ourselves in a kind of «double perception«, between reality and imaginary without any possibility of control.
This series is based on my own experiences of «blanks», but nothing indicates that it’s not fictional.
The steroscopes are a bit unusuals because they don’t represent the same thing for each eye.
So, during the observation through the stereoscope, the brain of the viewer devellops an image which does not exist. the right image is a drawing which represents the thought, it overlaps the left image, a picture which represents the visual reality.
The viewer loses all its visuals contacts with reality and finds himself “in a mental construction”.
Indeed, if he wants to observe only one of the images, he must close one eye.
