There is a blind spot in recent accounts of the history, theory and aesthetics of optical
media: namely, the field of the three-dimensional, or trans-plane, image. It has been
widely used in the 20th century for very different practices - military, scientific and medical
visualization - precisely because it can provide more spatial information. And now in the
21st century, television and film are employing the method even more.
Appearing for the first time in English, Jens Schroeter's comprehensive study of the
aesthetics of the 3D image is a major scholarly addition to this evolving field. Citing case
studies from the history of both technology and the arts, this wide-ranging and
authoritative book charts the development in the theory and practice of three-dimensional
images. Discussing and analyzing the transformation of the socio-cultural and
technological milieu, Schroeter has produced a work of scholarship that combines
impressive historical scope with contemporary theoretical arguments.
