"Who remembers ViewMaster and the accompanying reels? The background of this piece is all original reels. View-Master is the trademark name of a line of special-format stereoscopes and corresponding View-Master "reels", which are thin cardboard disks containing seven Stereoscopic 3-D pairs of small transparent colour photographs on film (ba-dum-bum).
I cursed myself when I started this project. Three days to glue down the reels. THREE DAYS!! I tried spray painting on the words because I thought I wouldn’t be able to paint on the reels (I was wrong). What I did get out of that was I can’t wait to spray paint something else.
I decided to paint in the letters and outline each small square where the photographs on film were. Then I sanded the teal background so the shape of the reels would be more visible. This piece is oozing with nostalgia. I can remember playing with a ViewMaster as a child and so do my kids. A timeless classic."
