The functionality of the visual cortex has been described in [63] and in [50] as a contact manifold of dimension three and in [62] the Mumford and Shah functional has been proposed to segment lifting of an image in the three dimensional cortical space. Hence, we study here this functional and we provide a constructive approach to the problem, extending to the sub- Riemannian setting an approximation technique proposed by De Giorgi in the Euclidean case.
