The stereographic photography undertaken at Hampi for the Place-Hampi represents the world’s second high resolution stereographic panoramic coverage of an historic site in the world (preceded only by Sacred Angkor, Cambodia: refer to The Virtual Room, Museum Victoria, 2004 ).
The 360 degree field of view allows unique landscape documentation, and the stereo pairs themselves also allow for accurate modelling of the scene in 3D for purposes of digital reconstructions.
Over 280 stereo pairs were taken at the Hampi site by John Gollings, Sarah Kenderdine and Jeffrey Shaw. The entire collection provides unique and accurate recording of the site. Visitors to Ancient Hampi get to view the original transparencies at first hand on a super size light table. Eighteen of the pairs were finally selected from the numerous possibilities, for the interactive installation PLACE-Hampi.
