Q I/2020: Change

Themes for the events 2020 will be announced in the WWP facebook group.
Shooting period is January to March 20 for Q I.

The preparation server will be open from January 1 to March 31. You can request your own account/profile page on the server during this period.
The new event’s site will be made public as soon as this administrative check is complete.

There will be a Late Edit period after the first edition is made public, and a second, extended edition will be published after Late Edit is completed.

Essay for Change
The Only Thing Constant Is Change.

This proverb is attributed to the Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesos – c. 535 – c. 475 BC. His very special philosophy earned him the epithet “The Obscure”.

Now, the new theme for the World Wide Panorama Event Q1/2020 is “Change”. This theme has received the most votes in our little survey.

Why “Change”?

It seems that this theme has hit a nerve since we all are experiencing changes all around. The general perception is that these changes are getting both more in number and faster in speed. They occur in science, in politics, in art, in society, in communities and in families (for sure this list is by far not complete).

We humans are always somewhat torn between the two poles Constancy and Change. We sure need a certain amount of constant things around us: in our family, our community and society … otherwise we‘d feel rootless or even haunted. On the other hand a world without change would at least be enormously boring if not even deadly boring.

But one thing is for sure: “One cannot step into the same river twice” as again Heraclitus said to illustrate the constant flow of time and of the water in that river. For sure? The Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889 – 1951 AD) contradicted Heraclitus by saying “Of course one can step into the same river twice.” Surely, it is the water in the river that changes constantly – but does that make the river change all that fast?

There you go: a bit of philosophy on a new theme!

You have voted. It is now up to you, to bring a panoramic universe of “Change” to the WWP. We are really curious and eager to see your contributions!

If you left panorama art and business since your last contribution, please pass the information on to anyone you know doing panoramas.
