This chapter looks at the way in which the whole world has been imagined in visual and audiovisual media. In particular, it explores how the trope of global travel was exploited in nineteenth-century panoramas that had the ambition to encompass the entire world, such as the georama, the cosmorama and round-the-word moving panoramas. By looking at these earlier examples in mass visual culture, the chapter hopes to provide a useful framework to examine the way in which the whole world has reemerged in contemporary audiovisual culture.
