The Great Barrier Reef shall always stand as one of the most immense and awe-inspiring natural wonders of the world. Representing an almost endless and far reaching coral reef of the Eastern Seaboard of Australia, it is the sort of destination so many add to their bucket list of places they simply must visit in life.
For that cannot yet afford to travel to Australia, there is this panoramic exhibit by German visual artist Yadegar Asisi that recreates the environment and beauty of the Great Barrier Reef in the comfort of a gallery. Currently featured until September 18th, 2016 in Leipzig, Germany, visitors have a chance to get up close and personal with the Reef.
Having been fascinated by the representation of spatial depth since childhood, Mr. Asisi has taken it upon himself to bring back the 360° Panoramas. Sometimes they are of cities such as Rome, or natural environments such as Mount Everest. On how he chooses his next project: “Whether I depict cityscapes or natural environments, I am inspired by the tensions arising between those two powers of creation — mankind and nature. For me, it’s ultimately a question of the wide variety of genesis and decay.”
