A dimensional photographic mural: the design and construction

The objective was the development of a photographic mural and a structure that would effectively display the mural, a composite of photographs. The subject was the human body photographed in high contrast. In photographing the body at a close range, areas ordinarily ignored were significantly isolated. The mural itself did not serve as surface for a relief, as originally proposed, but became the focus for the development of a multi-dimensional photographic form (with the omission of any surface variation that would serve on1y to detract). The illusion of depth, created by the mural, will be finalized within the observer, being dependent upon his visual involvement.
