Out My Window

An impressive 2010 on-line documentary: Out My Window, Katerina Cizek, Canadian National Film Board. Examines responses to highrise living, focusing on a range of international case-studies. More info at the project blog.

Nice re-examination of QTVR – both playfully resisting the seamless 360 view (enabling a kind of navigable collage) and also pushing seamlessness to new levels (the Yellow Bird technology enables video qtvr).

An offshoot project is One Millionth Tower (2011), which deliberately avoids the use of proprietary software – it’s all HTML5, open-source Javascript libraries, etc.. A link to the GitHub code.
