This research exchange brings together researchers, artists and industry experts to share their research exploration on stereoscopic technologies, their effects and possibilities. The event invites international experts to convene with Canadian artists and researchers, while welcoming emerging artists and researchers who are curious about the technology and its effects. We will explore practical issues, ideas, directions and goals for stereoscopic research projects. This exchange gathering will work as a preparation where tests, demos and experiments will be started.

Stereopsis plays with our binocular vision for depth perception by presenting the viewer with two slightly different versions of a scene, one for each eye. Methods to display imagery stereopsis dates back to the 1830s. In the 1950’s the emergence of 3D cinema changed stereoscopy from an individually experience to a mass audience experience. Full colour projected stereoscopy arrived with the invention of IMAX, using circular polarized filtered glasses and a screen size that encompassed our peripheral vision to enhance the immersive quality. The static position of viewing and the stereographic illusion and extension of depth have been fixed. What happens when the viewers can move around the viewing screen, embodying the space of illusion, expanding the 3D representation in space, stretching it in and out, and becoming elastic allows exploration of immersive content creation, including video, interactive graphics, drawing and performance.
