Urbi et Orbi
The exhibition Urbi et Orbi is one of a series of cultural events linked to the 250th anniversary of the central square in the French town of Nancy, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its eighteenth century architecture. Planetary Visions has produced nine minutes of new 3D animation for a continuously-looping video installation showing a flight around the Earth.
The installation shows the track of the great circle from Nancy to its antipodes, computed by the French mapping agency, IGN, together with film and video material from the 18 countries on five continents along the way.
