Quatroscopy Butterfly on Clover

670,00 (excl. shipping)

Artist: Hans Thierstein


This Quatroscopy depicts a silver-washed fritillary (Kaisermantel) – no it's not a bikini-top, resting on a meadow-clover. Graphically speaking, this quatroscopy is a square image in the center, reflected three times in four directions. In reality such patterns emerge, when an image is observed through a four-sided mirror-tunnel (quatroscope) similar to a caleidoscope, but with four, rather than three mirrors forming the tunnel.

Ever since developing my first quatroscope, I have enjoyed myself, producing such patterns using many kinds of input pictures. Quatroscopies are a second view of a simple reality. For more information on quatroscopy visit my website: www.hansthierstein.ch
