Magnus Pind Big Picture

Big Picture is a video installation consisting of a rotating video projection and a large-scale circular canvas, as a contemporary version of a 19th century panorama – the hugely popular entertainment medium of the Industrial Revolution. Almost extinct now, the panorama is considered a precursor to both cinema and the immersive technologies of today. The piece explores public vs private memory, systems of knowledge and mapping … What could a panorama look like if it didn’t just project calm reassurance of the status quo, but possibly uncertainty, fleeting knowledge, lapsed memory?
