Today's photo of the day is of the Great Picture, but Wiki's explanation leaves a lot to be desired.
The Great Picture is really pretty cool. Using an aircraft hangar as a pinhole camera, a group of artists created a print 111 feet wide and 32 feet high. They describe the development process here:
I check Wikipedia’s main page everyday, along with my usual round of news sites (I’m a news and marketing writer in my day job), and today’s picture of the day was of the Great Picture. They made sure to mention that it was symbolic of the transition from photo/chemical photography to digital photography.
Methinks their attempt at a metaphor was trying to be too cut and dry. We didn’t abandon one from the other. We remixed them together.
Pardon me while I go develop my roll of colour 110 and then upload it for the whole world to see.
