Lenticular Work: Videos
Yanko Tihov’s 'Europe 1930s' and 'Europe 1960s' is a lenticular dyptich which captures passport covers of Contemporary Europe in juxtaposition to passport covers from WW2 and Cold War period. Stepping away from his two dimensional work, Tihov has combined these two maps into a three dimensional lenticular artworks. As the viewer changes their view point, the imagery moves between the different eras. This movement between time subtly reveal the change in both history and identity of the countries from the 1930’s to the present day. Boundaries move, alliances are made, The European Union is formed, and the Europe we now know is discovered.
'British Empire Before and After' is also a lenticular piece and change as you move past, showing the passports of countries as they were under British rule and how they are now, post-independence.
