By adding an additional dimension to the traditional two dimensional art we make, we are able to expand our visual experience, what we see, and thus what we might become. This visual expansion changes or adds to the patterns that produce our thoughts and behavior. As 2D artists see and create in a more three dimensional space, their work may generate within the viewer a deeper understanding of the thought processes in themselves and others. This can be achieved by creating images in three dimensional. The work aligns more closely with natural physiology, that is, it is seen with both eyes. Traditionally, color and rules of perspective trick the viewer into thinking in three dimensions. By adding the stereoscopic element, an object is experienced in a naturally 3D space with the use of two eyes. Further visual expansion is achieved with the use of ChromaDepth glasses to actually see the work in 3D as it is being created. This cannot be done with other 3D methods that require two images or special programming to work. Hence, the spontaneous creation of an image within a 3D space becomes a new reality for the artist. By working in a truly three dimensional space that depends on two eyes to experience, an artist gains a new perspective on color, transparency, overlapping, focus, etc. that allows him/her new ways of working and thus seeing: a new form of expression.
