.................................................Visual Representation

With the combination camera/computer, and the availability of innovative software, we can portray the 360 degrees of the visual world. No lens can capture the 360 degrees of space, but the camera/computer system can. When one bypasses the optics of the lens, the front, back, top and the bottom can be seen simultaneously. The representation of the visual space becomes a total entity: a Visual Planisphere.

Many paradigms to represent the world have been used and challenged throughout history. Our present paradigm to represent the world was established when Brunelleschi put forward the laws of linear perspective. Then, at the beginning of the XX century, this paradigm was challenged by avant-guard artists who claimed that it was the conceptual space, not the optical one that mattered.

The representation of space as a 360 degree planisphere opens new possibilities to experiment with new forms of visual representation.
