August 2012 - Perspectives (Arny Weinstein)

Artist: Arny Weinstein (A. W. Scopes)

Description: This kaleidoscope is an open edition featuring Jatoba and East Indian Rosewood.   The scope has a tapered 3 mirror system with two viewing holes to allow for two different "perspectives".

Dimensions: 11 1/2 inches high by 5 inches wide and 3 1/4 inches deep.

Interior Image: It has a tapered 3-mirror system with two eye-holes looking through different points of the wide opening of the mirrors.  The larger eye-hole exhibits a globe-like image and for another "perspective", the smaller eye-hole, with greater magnification, focuses on the 8 point mandala on the surface of the globe.

Objects: Liquid chamber with flame-worked glass.  A black background is used.

Miscellaneous: Scope is unique in that it has only one mirror system but offers two distinct images.
