FORM & FUNCTIONALITY : ? : the screen we look at · PINK FLOYD DESIGN

Pink Floyd concert : Signs of Life circa 1988 : A circular on stage screen

The first time i ever experienced a round screen to watch a video was at a Pink Floyd concert in Sydney Australia. Pink Floyd were very innovative with their onstage performances, they set the bench mark for many groups. The 360 degree screen challenged the excepted viewing form of an oblong rectangle, with an aspect ratio of 16:9. Is that geometry more functional to the eye than a circle? To be discussed…

Some pics from their concerts.
