 3-D Mark Diamond Invades Swampspace

The Spatial Recognition Show 
is sure to be eye-opener of 3-Dimensional photography reflecting this amazing medium. 

Diamond helped establish the Museum of Holography in New York City in 1975.  For three decades he has maintained a laser laboratory for holographic research and more recently developed an indescribable lenticular imaging technique applied to portraiture of notables such as Buckminster Fuller and more importantly the impromptu photo-journalism of street theater personalities .  At mid-career Diamond is nudging the envelope of contrived expectation with a stunning sense for the power of kitsch.  

this is a new medium for most people, and as such a new visual language which requires a bit of contemplation in order to really see what is going on in these little gems. By presenting such an overwhelming pastiche of subjects all in one place the viewer can readily acclimate to this new lexicon if they have the patience to engage, the rewards are great and it directly affects their appreciation for the 3-D- depth of the world around them.”

Not to be underestimated, Diamond professes to have assembled a gallery of hundreds of images aptly called the 3-D Wall-o-Gram.  Included in his arsenal is an unusual  3-Dimensional Aerial Atlas of Miami filmed from a helicopter over the last 4 years.  The centerpiece of Diamond's 3 ring circus is entitled GreenSpace.   Visitors will encounter a chunk of earth and green leaves popping from the floor causing the sensation you are seemingly knee deep in it.  Diamond says that the experience is achievable in a dream state where objects intersect and share 3 dimensional spaces in a way “real” things cannot.
