Remember Stereoscopy?

Stereoscopy is the presentation of two images of the same subject from a slightly different angle to provide an illusion of depth. If you remember the ViewMaster, Magic Eye posters, or (to a lesser extent) the Virtual Boy, then you know what it’s all about. The (apparent) photo-themed website Cursive Buildings has taken pairs of old photographs and combined them into a single flashing/flickering image that is one of the best ways to fake a sense of depth on a two dimensional plane (your computer monitor).
