    OK, I think I'm getting it. So the zone plate image is not a part of what we are seeing. Right?

    I enjoy the idea of the non-planar walls. It would be fun to paint the projection on the wall, and then you'd have an anamorphic image that could only be viewed coherently from the point where the lens was originally. (This is me musing. What you've done is great in itself). Are you familiar with the work of Gillian Brown? She projects images on irregular surfaces and paints them. Here's a link: http://www.gillianbrown.com/JillClassroom.htm

    That's really great. Does it have a strap on it so you can wear it around your neck? (A friend of mine was a jeweler. I asked him once what the biggest piece he ever made was. Answer: he set the Golden Gate Bridge in a ring. Cheated, though, used epoxy).

    I love the circus side show look it has. Good job, Eric. I'd love to see it. What time of year, in case I ever get back there when it's up.

    Thanks, it is the effort of a number of folks. No neck strap, but we did try a pistol grip once with limited success. We have a lot of fun with it. I would recommend to anyone who was ever curious about these things to find a room somewhere and try one out, there is something magical about it. It really connects you to the roots of our medium. And for those who might find themselves in Providence, we set this up for RISD over the Columbus Day weekend each year. Always in a new spot, always free and open to the public.

    Not as big a production as yours, which is over the top, but I've done two of these things. One was at another college where the room was really not appropriate at all, but it was great nonetheless. A whole lot of faculty showed up, and there was a guy in the class who ran outside and stood on his head. So he was the only thing that was right-side-up.

    I'm due to pay a visit to RISD anyway. I've got colleagues who came from there. Generally seem like a fun loving bunch. Or did I just get lucky?
