I saw this work at the ArchiChaos Exhibition in London (14th Oct to 13th Nov, Curated by Julia Van Hagen/Artstanding). "The exhibition 'ARCHICHAOS' demonstrates the notion of architecture and chaos. Each artist's work included in this project reflects upon the notion of architecture, nature and society."

It is also relevant at this point to connect this work with Muybridge's panorama of San Francisco; which I had mentioned earlier as an important influence in creating a digital panorama of Mumbai.

27th Dec. 2010 Update: Kolkoz uses pieces of photographs to "construct" the blue sky in the above work, which in turn influenced my own practice. I used a similar method to construct a sky with pieces of video footage.
