"Robert Munn & Sara Cook make work involving lenticular lenses (a technology slightly related to holography & diffraction gratings). They call the aggressively 3-D (but flat in reality) photographs "depthography." See them - they are impressive. Although some of Munn & Cook's work is representational & animated, the ones at Klein are abstract."
