‘Play the Panorama’ is a series of endless traveling panorama drawings.
A special panorama drawing instrument is used by various artists world wide to continue to draw a moving landscape. Artists are called upon to contribute their interpretation of the world that surrounds them. Moreover they are asked to interact with the contributions made by previous artists. When an artist completes his or her drawing, the instrument and the panorama is passed to a next ‘player’ who is geographically nearby and whose work is somehow artistically related to that of the previous participant. This next person will continue the former drawing, blending the new landscape into one continuous panorama.
Play the Panorama is about sharing a constantly traveling and infinitely expanding horizon. There is no grant or award to be given away. This is a game played not for winning but for the enjoyment of continuing the play. Depending on the quality and the length of the different panoramas, a book publication and several exhibitions are realistic. On the website Panographia.com an up to date presentation of the developing panoramas will be shown.
We are especially looking for artists that want to contribute to one of the running panoramas in Berlin, London, Naples, New York City or Dubai.
