The retina is a flat layer of cells that can only detect two dimensions: height and width. Our perception of the 3rd-dimension is a creation within the circuits in the back of the brain. These visual circuits process more than a half-dozen depth cues (i.e. perspective, overlapping objects, the haze of distance objects, etc.) to generate our perception of depth. This piece is designed to highlight that, after the brain has created a 3-D perception, it is stubborn to disengage…even when the scene begins to distort, sway and twist.
