within the panometer in leipzig, germany — a visual panorama displayed inside a former gasometer — berlin-based artist yadegar asisi projects a ‘great barrier reef’ onto a giant circular screen, surrounding visitors in imagery of the underwater world of australia’s coral reef. presented at 1:1 scale, the display spans about 3,500 square meters — 32 meters high and 110 meters in circumference — transporting visitors on a visual expedition to the largest coral reef on earth. the hyper-realistic art space shows a vibrant display of colors, the submarine world of corals and sea plants and animals, revealing their interactions through dynamic, changing light conditions.

  • Congradulations Yadegar Asisi !
    As an Australian I aplaud you. This is great for educating the world communities what fragile beauty rests within human influence.
    I hope it motivates us to understand more, care more and act more regarding nature and ecosystems.

  • what is really important is that the coral reefs are being destroyed. Just another feel good disneyland display to assuage guilt.

  • Yes, nice but it’s not a real 360 degree view…look at the top and floor.
