Patterns in a Window

8 03 2012

So it gets bloody hot in Phoenix. Sunny with it, too!

As well as PVC black-out roller blinds on the hotel windows, there were two layers of mesh to cut out some of the light without being totally black.

From across the room, these 2 layers of ~3mm black mesh (like bug screen I suppose) caused interference patterns, giving the impression of a wavey 3/4″ lower frequency mesh. I tried to capture the effect, but of course being an optical illusion, it was a bit hard to focus!

The first one you think, fishnet stockings; by the third you see, it’s prison from the yard. It’s the middle one which scares me, it might combine them both.

I thought you always wore your red ones in prison…

No, they’re too easily ruined by the salad dressing.

You’re on a roll this evening (for you – I’ve just got out of bed. Must go home now…)

Focus or not, it’s still neat!

That’s very kind of you to say. Our eyes/brain can certainly play weird tricks on our perception. Try this, for example…

looking at this i am reminded of a very fun photo trick… find a picture of interest and place it behind the screen after you have misted the screen. the water droplets on the mesh will reflect the image behind it..upside down.
