The BIG FIRE panorama was created by Stefan Roloff at NYIT (New York Institute of Technology) in 1984. It is one of the first artist- created digital videos, done on an Images II Computer prototype.

Stefan Roloff also collaborated with Martin Rev and Jim O'Rourke on live- and installation concepts of this piece:
