create a 360 degree image, one has to stitch about 40 photographs
(taken at regular intervals). First, the visual equator is recorded,
then the northern and southern visual hemispheres and then the
zenith. An interesting situation takes place when one tries to
photograph the nadir, because at this spot the photographer stands
with his equipment. In other words, the photographer interferes
in the process of recording the visual sphere. To record the total
space, one, as a photographer, needs to disappear, yielding this
spot to the space being recorded. The absence of the photographer
gives the Visual Planisphere its total presence.
visual planisphere is the representation of the Sphere
of Space in two dimensions. We are dealing with a map, and maps
can be explored, projected in different ways and used to see relations
that are not apparent in the real world.
360 degree image opens the possibility to do Visual Cartography.
