MAGIC EYE PRINT

CURTIS ROTH X A83 X DISC

SOLD OUT

Each work in the series is unique and hides a different user-generated sketch in a circular “magic eye” pattern. The edition is co-produced by its collectors, whose mediated gestural labor is distributed throughout the series. When the print is ordered, the purchaser completes a sketch in the accompanying web app
that is then embedded into the next print in the edition for a future collector. The purchaser receives a print with a drawing done by the previous collector in the edition. Give yourself a headache trying to see a stranger’s magic drawing hidden in a print!

Printed on heavy-weight satin finish 8.5" x 11" paper in a limited edition of 50
