The more I have pursued the elongated shape as a housing... I have come to realize how fitting and correct it is. Unlike the conventional Renaissance 'window shape' format which expects a single perspective focus, the panoramic format announces a sweep of ‘centerings’ or gathering places that does not focus the attention but allows it to rhythmically travel from one end of the canvas to the other. This approximates the way most of us actually experience the Midwest countryside, which is by driving past it in an automobile.” –Harold Gregor on panoramas
