Metaphoric Optical Viewers: Stereoscope

Metaphoric Optical Viewers: Stereoscope (2022) is a work by Linhuei Chen.

Different kinds of optical viewers appear in Chen's work as metaphors for how she looks at her past and observe her life in the Netherlands. During the winter session at V2, she explored the visual effects created by the stereoscope: merging two images and forming the third possibility by engaging the viewers' personal visual processing experience in the brain. For her, the constantly merging, overlapping, and changing status serves as a metaphor for how she experiences cultural hybridity.

Metaphoric optical viewers: stereoscope was co-produced by Linhuei Chen and V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media as part of the Winter Sessions art and technology residencies.
