Each of these colorations of the same print contains an illustration of a phoenix,
the mythological, almost immortal firebird known to have been reborn of the ashes from which it burned.
Each Three Dimensional image embedded within these prints represents
a different traditional mechanism of American warfare.
The goal of these stereograms was to combine 3D modeling, stereoscopic principles
and digital printing technologies to comment on the sometimes surreal serenity of daily american life
that is all too often underscored by our military presence in wars around the world.
The ornate phoenix also evokes the rise and fall of human societies,
as in Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Hopefully, as in the book,
humankind will remember the mistakes of its past,
celebrate culture and exalt collective conscience over individual importance.

If you need additional help seeing the illustration in this single image stereogram,
below is the hidden M4A1 Carbine Rifle that appears in the above print:

The M4A1 (shown below in context courtesy of the Department of Defense)
can be found in use by many U.S. military units, including the Delta Force,
U.S. Navy SEALs and the U.S. Marine Corps' Radio Reconnaissance Platoons.
The M4A1 Carbine is specially favored by counter-terrorist and special forces units
for close quarters combat because of the carbine's compactness and firepower.
These features are also very useful in urban warfare. The M4 has selective fire options
including semi-automatic and three-round burst, while the M4A1 has a "full auto" option
in place of the three-round burst. The M4A1 is sometimes also found with a heavier barrel
to withstand heat from sustained fully-automatic fire. The M4 was developed and produced
for the United States government by Colt Firearms, which has an exclusive contract
to produce the M4 family of weapons through 2009. The U.S. Air Force plans to transition
completely to the M4 Carbine. The M4A1 Carbine can be fitted with many accessories,
such as night vision devices, laser pointers, telescopic sights, bipods,
the M203 grenade launcher and the XM26 LSS shotgun.
