Right View

Freund’s technique was to paint a design on metal or wood scored vertically every few fractions-of-an-inch. He then painted strips of metal in a similar motive, or with alternating view of the same scene on either side of the metal. The strips were then fitted into groves for Op effects, as the eye moves from side to side. The level of vision slightly changing causes a moving, fluctuating sensation.
