Picture the Horses
One of Rochester's most successful public art events was the 2001 Horses on Parade city-wide exhibition, which involved 160 local artist-decorated fiberglass horses that were placed around the Rochester area. Many of these horses are still on display, and their locations are noted on this map.
- Take multiple photos of one of these horses, from a variety of angles.
- Use Microsoft's free Photosynth utility to build a three-dimensional representation of the horse.*
- Submit the URL for your Photosynth here or on the code submission page. Your URL must be submitted by 8pm on Thursday, September 17.
You'll receive an achievement worth 250 points just for submitting a completed Photosynth image. Our photography staff will judge the submissions, and the top six winners of the competition will receive an additional 250-point achievement, as well as this week's prize of a Kodak digital picture frame (we inaccurately listed the video camera as the prize earlier this week), and two tickets to the Halloween Gala.
* If you don't have a Windows-based computers, bring your collection of photos to RIT's Center for Student Innovation on Wednesday night between 6-8pm, and we'll turn them into a Photosynth while you wait! The Center (Building 87) is located close to both the J Lot and S Lot on campus. See this campus map for details.
