The other day I was clicking through Wikipedia and I came across this interesting stereogram. Check out these other stereocards.
Geospatial Art in a box – The Anticipation

On Friday my most recently commissioned map, Shirlington Quilt, arrived at my house. I placed it in my living room and decided to wait until the future owner arrived before I took the map out of it’s extremely large shipping box. I can’t help but be reminded of Christmas time when I was a kid. There’s that unique sense of anticipation that I feel toward what’s inside of this box. Will the map be printed nicely? Will the canvas be stretched perfectly? Are the colors nice? Will the future map owner like what they are paying for?
Well, I am pleased to say that the map turned out perfectly and the new owners are pleased :-) Hopefully, in the not too distant future, I’ll get a photograph of how the owners hung the map in their house. Everyone puts their maps up in different places and it should look great no matter where it’s hung.

I think the decorations are cute: a poster for kids showing the basic fruits & vegetables in written Arabic, a faux-antique plate, and a mandala dish. I don’t know where any of them are from or how they got to where they are at, but I am enjoying the random juxtaposition.

Using Bryce, I constructed a 3D model of a prototype recycling room that could replace the single chute trash for all high-rise apartment buildings.
