# Abstract Art - Misc (100 pts)

## Description
> I saw this new painting in a gallery by famed painter Otto Stairee O'Graham. Everyone raves about how clearly it represents some common motif, but looking at it just makes me go cross-eyed.
> flag is: wctf{name of object in painting} (hint: it's two syllables)

### Provided files
abstract.jpeg - a JPEG image \[[download](https://i.imgur.com/ZR6zR32.png)\]

## Ideas and observations
1. as a 90s kid, the image is immediately recognisable as a "Magic Eye" image - or more properly and autostereogram; a 2D image that is capable of producing the illusion of a 3D scene when viewed correctly.

## Notes
1. I'm technically able to view autostereograms, but I see them with the Z axis inverted and viewing them causes me not-insignificant physical pain
2. Luckily there are tools to decode them

## Solution
1. Upload the image to [Jérémie Piellard's stereogram solver](https://piellardj.github.io/stereogram-solver/) and the result is a fairly clear image of a teapot:

the flag is `wctf{teapot}`
