Close-Up

Bringing the main Chambers ‘out of the building’ and experience the once vibrant historical spaces open and celebrated in large-scale splendour. To enable such detail I used a robotic attachment to camera to capture 70 images in a panoramic detail and digitally stitched together for each Chamber. The images were then recomposed to apply a texture and modified for colour blending.

Subtle references to election speeches embedded behind the people silhouettes providing another layering of information and symbolic context.
