In a couple of days, I’ll be heading off to Norrkoping, Sweden for a summer school on visualisation. My talk will address two conventions found across many imaging modalities area fields: the view form nowhere and the seamless zoom. The presentation will be posted here, once I’ve finished tweaking it today. Among others, my visual argument will take up the book Zoom by Istvan Banyai and the short film Powers of Ten. An interesting variation that predates the Eames and Eames production is Cosmic Zoom, (1968) of the NFB of Canada.
