While visiting my parents in Germany this past summer we “went” to Rome for the afternoon. It was an amazing, virtual trip back in time.
The location is as amazing as the exhibit housed within: it is an old Gasometer (originally used in the Victorian Era to store vast amounts of gas from nearby gasworks).
My hometown Pforzheim – once a Roman stronghold named “Portus” was the inspiration for this current exhibit: Rome in the year 312. Depicted is a 360 degree view of the eternal city at the time of emperor Constantine – by the artist Yadegar Asisi.
The music is composed by Eric Babak and compliments the experience perfectly…here is a small sample of visuals with music (excuse the shaky camera).
