Glassless Stereo Cinematography by David Kakabadze

Kakabadze was born
into a poor peasant family in the village of Kukhi near the town of Khoni. Sponsored by local philanthropists, he studied natural sciences at St. Petersburg University. At the same time, he attended painting classes.

Kakabadze followed the concept of Leonardo da Vinci's that art is a science and it must aspire to universality. He lectured on various aspects of visual arts in Paris and, developing his interest in kinetic form, in 1923 he constructed a film camera that produced the illusion of relief and thus became one of the pioneers of three-dimensional cinema.

“Besides stereo cinema, Kakabadze worked on the idea of getting various grades of light in a single electric bulb, along with the method of restoration of the volumetric image from a photograph. David implemented his original technical innovations at the factory. He invented a way of regulating the illuminating power of the electric bulb, which made it possible to control the level of brightness. If the project succeeded, the artist would earn 180,000 francs.” reads the online exhibition about the Georgian painter-scientist.
