360° online application – a post-digital apparatus for playing with the position of the self
A virtual public space for wandering, wondering and speculating, cityscape immerses the viewer within 360°views of a digital multi-horizon-cityscape. The app consists in a realtime-engine that automatically creates a city-landscape out of the user’s choice from a list of cities worldwide. The collaged city imagery image orbit can be navigated and altered by the user from within.
Supported by the Schütte-Lihotzky architecture research grant 2010 awarded by the Austrian Ministry of Education, Art and Culture 2010, the application was released at the cityscape launch event on March 24th 2011.
