Hungarian Artist Bence Agoston's 3D Discourse

Decent Essays
Thanks to 3D-printing, it seems like anything is possible these days. Like, have you ever found yourself thinking, “Gee, I really would like to trip balls today, but I just don’t feel like actually tripping?” If so, you may want to check out Hungarian artist Bence Agoston’s new “Mood” sunglasses. The sunglasses, which are designed to make you feel like you’re in the middle of a panic-free LSD experience (at least, visually speaking), are made from 100% 3D-printed materials. The frame is made out of ABS, a highly moldable plastic, while the lenses are made out of UV-filtered and transparent material, so not only will they make you think you’re hallucinating, but they’ll also protect you from the sun. So, how exactly does all of this work? Each pair of frames comes with six different sets of patterned lenses, which can be layered in a myriad of different ways in order to best suit your visual needs. Each of the lenses has its own specific Moiré pattern (which is a kind of superimposed pattern created by overlaying two identical patterns, and then slightly rotating them away from each other), which filter green, red and blue lights. If you don’t like the show you’re seeing, simply rotate the layered lenses until you like what you see.
