TwinScope Viewer: A contemporary stereoscope for exhibits, archives, and more!
This patented exhibition stereoscope is uniquely designed for viewing stereographs in frames or display cases and also works great for viewing hand-held stereographs in the archive, actual-size (7”x3.5-4.5”) reproductions in books or on monitors, and modern stereoviews.
Designed and handcrafted by artist and stereograph specialist Colleen Woolpert, the TwinScope Viewer is both an art object and functional technology.
