Poland in the kaiserpanorama 
- invite us to your city


In 1866, Alois Polanecky built a machine with 25 stereoscopes built in. That is how kaiserpanorama was born making the magic of viewing pictures together commonly accessible. It is our desire to restore its former glory to this magic device. Our kaiserpanorama will take you to the parks, market squares and promenades of Polish cities of a 100 years ago, showing them and their history in 3D technology.






The magic of the stereoscope or the nature of kaiserpanorama​Stereoscopic photography is a technique which consists in taking two pictures of an object from different points of view. The viewer watches the pictures looking with the right eye at a picture taken from the right point of view and with the left eye  - from the opposite point. This creates an impression of a tridimensional space in which objects and people exist. The naturalness which is inherent to this technique is achieved by leveling the angles of vision and optical intervals.

Once, special glasses consisting of two slightly magnifying lenses placed next to each other to produce an effect of stereoscopic vision of an object, the so called stereoscope, were used to  see stereoscopic photos called stereo pairs. In our kaiserpanorama project we attempted to combine tradition with modernity. That is why the device we have created uses a form of presentation of the same picture slightly different from the original. In the modern version, multimedia are used as picture carriers and the application of a system of mirrors only enhances the perception of tridimensionality.





The construction of the kaiserpanorama​
The kaiserpanorama is built of wood and steel. It is resistant to changeable atmospheric conditions. The construction consists of foldable modules owing to which the kaiserpanorama can travel from town to town.

There are five stands with stereoscopes through which viewers can look in and enjoy the archival pictures.

The sliding mechanism of the kaiserpanorama uses multimedia thanks to which any number of photos can be presented. 
After dark, the kaiserpanorama is illuminated. It has special wooden steps for people of low height.

In every town we show local pictures obtained through cooperation with local institutions and associations, improving their quality and converting them for the purpose of getting stereo pairs.

The kaiserpanorama is made available for 4 weeks. The cost of preparing the exhibition and  transport depends on the number of pictures and the distance to be covered.
