Exhibitions

Fall 2014 - Spring 2015

Panorama

Reconstructing the View: Visualizing Time, Place, and the Collective Sublime

This exhibition includes examples of  large scale panoramas that respond to icons of landscape and culture in places such as the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and Northern California. Byron Wolfe uses photography and a diverse range of digital tools and visualizations to reflect on broader notions of culture, the passage of time, landscape, and the construction of perception. The resulting work is a combination of scholarly and historic research, creative expression, and personal narrative.
