It may be the “dog” days of August, but we’re partying it up and celebrating Caturday with one of our “dancing” stereoscopic images, created in The New York Public Library’s Stereogranimator  (a website by the brilliant NYPL Labs team). The site allows you to take one of the 40,000 stereoscopic images in our collection (originally meant to be looked at in a special machine that made them look 3-D) and turn it into a dancing gif (like this one) or your own 3-D image. Neat, huh? The image dancing above (check out what it looks like still) is from 1915, and shows a cat sitting on a tree stump on a pillow in the Adirondacks (because, of course, cats always sit on pillows in trees). It is in our Robert N. Dennis Collection of Stereoscopic Views, in our Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs. There are many other cat stereographs available, so go to town and create your own dancing kitties! HAPPY CATURDAY!
