Description: 

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe once said "you have to borrow the sky when you cannot see it." This virtual photograph is a tribute to Chicago's rich skyline, rooted in architecture history and the arts, as exemplified by the Jay Pritzker Pavilion designed by Frank Gehry and Cloud Gate by Anish Kapoor. This unique skyscape portrait was sculpted on the computer in three dimensions to create the PHSCologram, a digital 3D photograph that is visible without glasses, and is a reflection of the inventive times Chicago continues to thrive in.
