The Australian painter challenged himself to bring 3D movie magic to the streets. He created a futuristic babe surrounded by colored orbs, all of which pops out at the viewer when seen through red and blue tinted shades. Cochran painted the piece outside a friend's restaurant in London, and left a supply of glasses inside for passersby to use. The Huffington Post asked Cochran how many curious viewers he expected. "I had originally ordered 10 pairs of 3D glasses for the cafe," he wrote in an email. "But I think I need to order some more!"
