SAMURAI, a collaborative project by Chilean artist Edgar Endress and U.S. artist Mark Stockton, comprises a series of large-scale anaglyphs - stereo photographs printed in different colors designed to be viewed through chromatic lens. The resulting three-dimensional images depict members of a Japanese animation club in present day Trenton, New Jersey. Inspired by Japanese anime and culture, and dressed in costumes of their own design, the participants role-play and act out fantasy identities. Combining representation and illusion, the photographs examine the gap between identity and representation.
