The Moiré effect describes an interference pattern where two overlapping grids intersect at different angles or with different mesh sizes. While some may dispute the origin of the term, others trace it to Ernst Moiré, a mysterious 19th century Swiss photographer. In 2002, Cabinet Magazine sent author Lytle Shaw to Switzerland to investigate. In addition to an article published for the magazine (my favorite), The Moiré Effect tells the resulting story: "Shaw's thriller takes readers on a journey through the elegant salons of Swiss palazzi and the dusty bowels of ancient archives, finally ascending to a mountainous conclusion as hair-raising as it is bedevillingly oblique." I intend to complete the book on my long flight to and from San Francisco this week.
In great anticipation, I extend my boundless gratitude to BSD reader, and generous benefactor, Brian McC. I'm so excited I just couldn't help myself. I had to fuck it! I'll let your imagination "overlap" the two resulting gifs.
