Funds have been raised. Demonstrations have been given, lectures have been offered, and feedback listened too. I am excited to start, and have planned to begin this week at the bridges furthest south. 6 bridges are in about a 10 mile stretch of road, a perfect place to start. I have had feedback about the panoramas, some feel them difficult to look at, and in fact they are.
Panoramas are inherently difficult to view. We just can't see that much all at once. a 360° field of view where you can see what is behind you is just NOT possible without turning around for us humans. Fly's are a different subject, but we just can't see behind us, so when you have a field of view that encompasses a full circle, we inherently are confused. The curved lines in the area above and below us necessary to move the view from behind us to in front of us is really distracting, and confusing! Changing the view so the view is looking straight up and you see the panorama as a circle. you can still see the same information, but just in a different way. I would really love to do one as an immerseave panorama space that you can climb into. At least put your upper body into and look around. A Hanging Globe that is printed as a globe on the inside so you can experience the panorama as if you were there. The funny part about doing that is you once again can't see the entire circle of view at one time! It is limited by how you see.
