A taxidermy sculpture based on the “panorama fails” internet phenomenon.

Panoramic photography captures images with horizontally elongated fields of view. Creating panoramas used to be a lot of work and only tech-savvy photographers knew how to do it – manually stitching photos on the computer – but with the introduction of the feature in phones, “the phone can do it all for you”. With the popularization of the practice came a flood of mistakes: panorama fails that are so bad they’re good.

For two years the “physical” sculpture was never exhibited, and the work circulated exclusively through its image:
