Gasperini Wiggle No.3

I call the type of 3D animation below "Gasperini Wiggle" after Jim Gasperini, a San Francisco photographer, who hit upon the brilliant device of running two images from a Stereo Camera in sequence as an animated .GIF, thus inventing a new type of 3D animation.

Gasperini uses only photographs himself, but the technique applies more widely to any medium that can be animated.

Gasperini's impressive site, which contains much more than his Wiggles, is here:
