A lot of people are coming to my blog because they have entered “teleidoscope” as a search term. Maybe some my regular readers have also wondered what on Earth a teleidoscope is.
A teleidoscope is similar to a kaleidoscope, but much, much cooler. A kaleidoscope only creates its images from little bits of glass (or whatever it is) that are inside it. A teleidoscope creates those cool images from items that are OUTSIDE it. So, if you point your teleidoscope to your bookshelf, you will see those books in some way when you look through it. The number of images it can create is endless. Not two images are exactly the same.
I bought my own teleidoscope in the 90s in Key West in a small artist’s shop. It has been my pride and joy ever since. Here it is:
I found a very nice image of what a teleidoscope can do on flickr. If you look closely you can see the trees and the sky.
For more images there is a flickr group called Teleidoscope.
The image at the top of my sidebar is an image of some artwork on our walls in the hall.
