Anish Kapoor 360˚ Panorama Shoot

In March 2003 I was commissioned to shoot a number of 360˚ Panoramas, for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, of the Anish Kapoor installations. The project involved shooting the installations, stitching the panoramas and exporting them as finished files ready to be incorporated into the iPad App.

Anish Kapoor EPublication

This award winning application documents Anish Kapoor’s practice through the lens of his solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. In a world first, this app is a 'living catalogue' which evolved over the course of the exhibition. This has allowed the Museum to present the experience of the exhibition and its installation through interviews, photographs, interactive panoramas and videos recorded on site and in the Kapoor studio.

A traditional printed catalogue produced months ahead of an exhibition fails to capture the installation challenges and the final presentation in situ.

This ePublication has unfolded in three steps: a preview, the installation and the exhibition itself.

  • The Preview Edition launched the day of the exhibition opening and focused on the breadth of Kapoor’s practice.
  • The Installation Edition explores the challenge of the exhibition installation through video interviews, images and essays.
  • The Final Edition reflects on the Anish Kapoor exhibition. It includes interactive panoramas of the exhibition and a series of different perspectives on the exhibition from curators, visitors and MCA staff.

It is three publications rolled into one, made possible by an innovative digital publishing platform and the cooperation of Anish Kapoor’s studio. Download it now on iTunes.
