    Introduction

    The animation of June was created from drawings in space made with SANDDE, (Stereoscopic Animation Drawing Device). Using SANDDE is similar to drawing on paper except the lines are not confined to a two-dimensional surface. The artist moves a wand within a small magnetic field. The wand has a small receiver on it that is capable of detecting its own position within the field. The master computer interprets the moving wand position as a line in 3-space and generates left and right eye views. These views are projected in real time on a screen, which the artist is looking at through 3D glasses, and the lines appear to float in the air in front of the artist. The end result combines the warm familiarity of hand drawing with the sensational and unique experience of three-dimensionality.
