I value the freedom to mix media. I like the rounded, centered space that QTVR brings to the flat square world of computer screens, windows, and frames. These panos work with both QT 2 and 3, cross platform.
About the introduction
Irwin Klein phototgraphed the roof scene on E 10th St. in New York, 1962. That was when I began looking within, as I'm blindfolding my child in the photo. Showing the dome Wholeo as a UFO is symbolic of the visions to come. I lifted the IMAGINE mosaic from Central Park, as flying carpet of the imagination. John Lennon was yet to become famous, so I'm mixing more than media here. The "Revolving Rose" painting was real at that time.
About the Revolving Door pano
People are in revolving doors going in to the shiny new SF MOMA and coming out from the world of New York city. The door is a symbol of the interface to visions. Specifically visions of the art of Wholeo, a stained glass dome. Wedges of Wholeo are served up in segments. Transition is via the trenches, the construction under the revolving doors in and out. The doors between the segments look like primitive masks. Above are inner third eyes and below are mouths. The presences invoked are like the Voudou Legba, in cyberspace. The theme is "turning to the whole self".
About the Revolving Wholeo pano.
Technically, the idea is gears of revolution around in space. While you turn once around your axis in space, the image turns around its center five times. That is, the image spins at 72-degree intervals orthogonal to the pano axis. This might be useful way to display online star sky maps--planispheres. Also, it could have hotspots to details of the stained glass dome as it appears in my 1st invitational exhibition online at Sito.
