about virtual city of the sun

here are about 1000 photographs of city of the sun, all taken around high noon during april 2008, and space-ially related on these dynamically generated webpages.

i could've done this project very nicely with a high-res camera and quicktime-vr, but the skews, seams, gaps, and raw condition of these images very nicely invoke many real realities of the city of the sun in many dimensions, so i've let it be this way for now...

there are 8 frames around each location, the compass shows your current heading.  click any frame to turn and face in that direction, click the front one to go forward (if possible - "doorways" are framed in green).

also notice the viewing options below the compass... for example, flat shows all frames at full width, hemi shows 180 degrees around you, small scales everything down to fit a smaller screen, or try large or huge if you have a bigger screen...

my home-made virtual webserver is part of netsofa, written in hypercard 241, running in mac os 755 on a very nice old 100% solar-powered powerbook 540.  (if the virtual server is down, please try again a little later :)
