"pennyodean"
Michael Blomberg

A fascinating piece of work. The piece is reminiscent of the old boxes were you could see short films for a penny. The chalkboard exterior and circus theme draws you in, making you want to pay for a peek. When looking inside you see a distorted 3D image of people in their homes. It's as if you're looking in from the outside. A little creepy in my opinion. You can make some interesting conclusions off this project. Are we all just animals on display running around our lives and putting on an act?

The only thing I think could use work is the construction. The knob system was not sturdy enough to handle the operation by hasty people who don't read the instructions. The plastic lens' add a creepy factor but take away from the 3Dness of the pictures.
