VR – Panoramas

Flushing Meadows, Queens, NYC – New York State Pavilion-Ken Burns commissioned this Panorama for the website that accompanied his PBS documentary, “New York – A Documentary”.
It is a digital infrared panorama of the site of the 1939-40 and  1964-65 World’s Fair. Note the map of New York still visible on the floor of the once covered Pavilion.

Cave 123 at Maijishan, China

I was commissioned by the Asia Society and Chinese government to go to the eastern slopes of the Tibetan Plateau to photograph one cave – “Cave 123”.  It was one of some 90+ caves on a cliff face used in the 4th century as a Buddhist enclave. The cave itself was 6ft. x 6ft. x 6ft. and lined with terracotta figurines, Bodhisattvas and a central Buddha.  I was the first American to see this cave.  Charged with bringing back a “virtual” cave since the figures were too fragile and valuable to travel, I constructed a 360 degree theater within The Silk Road exhibit, a Kiosk and DVD for the Grand Opening of the Asia Society’s new building on Park Ave, NYC. If you have your stereo  red/blue glasses handy, it is in stereo.

MoMA, NY – Picasso Matisse ExhibitFor several years I had the privilege to document every room of every exhibit for the Museum Of Modern Art, NY.  This was the Museum’s primary way of archiving and documenting their exhibits and subsequently displaying them in an educational VR tour for multiple users.  Over 75 exhibits with an average of 50 “nodes” per exhibit made for an extensive cultural experience.  This “node” was from the blockbuster “Picasso – Matisse”  in the Moma Queens location.
