Sky Survey...the story behind the artist.
This is a great story of the photographer, Nick Risinger, as he set up a complex array of cameras at various latitudes in order to stitch together the entire sky in one picture. The final image is a 5k pixel HD image of the sky which can be viewed in augmented reality or 360 degree panorama. What a great project, and a great lesson for my students who take the immersive landscapes classes. Anyways, here is his website: http://skysurvey.org/story/ And here is the actual photograph (There should be icons at the bottom of the screen to navigate the image): http://media.skysurvey.org/interactive360/index.html --Blake Kirschbaum (Astro 1010)
