Welcome to the Wholeo Exhibit
Wholeo is a 14-foot diameter
stained glass dome. You can explore Wholeo through words and pictures presented as a book overview, detailed tour, history, colored light show, and answers to questions. (Wholeo is Copyright 1974 Caroling All Rights Reserved.)
How do you want to access the Wholeo Exhibit?
The pages look and load differently according
to the access path you choose. Each path leads to the same end -- seeing the pictures of Wholeo.
- Clickable links--quick
- The text link path lets you choose to view image maps, small GIFs or
JPEG graphics. You click links embedded in text descriptions. You control image download. This is the best place to start.
- Text and graphics--slower
- The text and graphics path has some image maps and several small GIF
graphics in addition to the descriptions. It takes much longer to download.
For each description or graphic, you can choose a clickable link to view a JPEG graphic.
- Hi-res graphics--slow
- The graphics path is sprinkled with small GIF graphics and image maps in
addition to the descriptions and a background graphic. With common modems, it takes forever to download each page. You choose to view a large, hi-resolution
JPEG graphic with each description. If you have a fast Web connection (or are willing to wait) and a capable display system, this path is rewarding.

Thanks to Silicon Graphics, Inc. for

Thanks to Carl Strasen for continuing to believe in the Wholeo dream and
encouraging me to bring Wholeo to the public. Of course, he has an ulterior
motive--he wants to walk into the real Wholeo dome under a sunny sky some day.
Also thanks to Ed Stastny of 2ito for his ideas and ongoing support of the exhibit.
