Some of Casper's art utilizes lenticular printing to show depth & varying patterns based on the viewers' perspective.Lenticular printing is a multi-step process consisting of creating a lenticular image from at least two existing images, & combining it with a lenticular lens. This process can be used to create various frames of animation (for a motion effect), offsetting the various layers at different increments (for a 3D effect), or simply to show a set of alternate images which may appear to transform into each other.
