About the Book
Robin Noorda is a versatile artist, making installations, animation films, documentaries, illustrations and experimental photography. He is also a curator and co-founder of the Tropism Art and Science Collective. This book shows a selection of ten years Hyperbolic panoramas, also known as little planets, showing the world in a 360º perception. Nowadays everyone can make these kind of panorama using a 360º camera, but Noorda's vision remains standing out by having achieved a quite unique idiom in his Hyperbolics that make the world go round.
