it's a short-lived type of camoflaged used on battleships designed to confuse the eye. shortly after it was invented radar came out so it's quite rare. dunno why someone painted his car in dazzle though -- that's just irresponsible.

three years pass...

Saw an exhibition on these at the American History Museum in DC. Apparently the dazzle was mostly used on pleasure cruise ships that were pressed into service cos of a navy deficit... because they were so lumbering and obvious, this was the only solution to confuse submarine periscopes... (and yeah, I was initially interested because of the OMD album, which also led me to buy "Organisation" for $4 from a small used record store in upstate New York last week...it's terrific!).
