Hampi, the ancient Hindu Kingdom of Vijayanagara, is a spectacular UNESCO world heritage site in Southern India. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates its unique landscape and monuments in the context of a ground breaking interactive art installation PLACE-Hampi, which elevates this vibrant contemporary pilgrimage centre into an embodied theatre of participation. The highly original feature of PLACE-Hampi is its interactive projection system, invented by Jeffrey Shaw in 1995, and which for the first time is now using stereoscopic 3D projection.
