Stereoscope is a photographic installation that explores current and historical modes of simulation and the physicality of vision. The installation consists of a pair of large-scale stereoscopic photographs and a stereoscopic viewing device. The photographs depict a video arcade with a player of a video game, in this case a motorcycle game, and a couple of spectators and by-standers. While using the viewing device, the photographs' reflections are overlapped in the viewer's field of vision and a three dimensional illusion occurs. Here, through the content of the images and the arrangement for viewing, virtual technologies developed for video arcades can be seen as contemporary equivalents of historical mechanisms such as the stereoscope.


Julie Andreyev is an artist whose practice explores the social and spatial character of the city using mobility and performance and animal consciousness through interactive installation and video. Her current work under the area of practice called Animal Lover examines animals and their methods of communication as creative beings. Key to Animal Lover are questions and critiques addressing modern relationships with animals and how animals are regarded by humans. Her work has been shown across Canada, in the US, Europe and Japan. Andreyev's work is supported by The Canada Council for the Arts, The British Columbia Arts Council, Foreign Affairs Canada, and The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. She is Associate Professor in Digital and Interactive Arts at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
