We’ve just been over to see Aidan O’Rourke at Urbis today. He’s exhibiting the Manchester Mega-Photo, which is a massive photo collage of Manchester town centre.
I was surprised by the details. It’s made up of around 300 images, and each small fragment of the overall collage is at 10 megabytes (cropped from an original 12 megabytes).
So it means you can see details such as a man sitting reading a book by the cathedral, and even stacks of Buxton water bottles in the Royal Bank of Scotland head office window.
Here’s Simon and Aiden standing in front of the Manchester City Centre backdrop:
I’d recommend going over to see it, especially if you live or work in the centre, it’s fab.
