work 344: This Endless Drag.. – a Moving Still. c. Michael St.Mark
A ” Still Moving ” TM image, the strength of its effect dependent upon the amount of motorway driving the viewer has generally experienced. By focusing on an area in the road ahead for a few seconds, similar to if one was actually driving, the unconscious resurrects an inner illusion of movement based on previous memory of hours of a similar-formatted view from the cab – a rather cool effect.
( may have potential in the field of psychotherapy, in the treatment of phobias for example )
