Missing Perspective shows the panoramic view from the deteriorating Tryvann TV tower’s observation platform closed to public since 2005. The entire 360-dergee view of the surrounding landscape is evenly segmented on 80 slides in a carousel. A revolving slide projector continuously displays the images in 30-second intervals onto a suspended cylindrical screen built in the fashion of 19th century panoramas. It takes approximately 90 minutes for the projector to complete one revolution.
