Top of the World (North Pole), 1997


MATERIALS: Inkjet on vinyl.

    A panoramic camera placed at the planet's axis (at the North Pole) rotates 360 degrees, spanning all twenty-four time zones as it pans and takes a picture. Viewers entering the panorama, rotate around their own axis to see the photograph -thus repeating the earth's and the camera's movement.
