Ever want to stand in the middle of Ivor Wynne stadium and just take it all in?
Your chances are dwindling — but Martin Renters and Eric Bosch of the Studio 12 photographic artist collective are giving you a shot.
The two have created an ultra-detailed panoramic photo of the stadium to capture Ivor Wynne in all its glory.
The photo has been blown up and is being used as an art installation for Supercrawl. Walk inside — it feels like you're standing at the 50 yard line.
“We wanted to have the last great and highest resolution image of Ivor Wynne ever,” Bosch said.
The 1840 megapixel photo was shot with a phase one camera, and is so detailed that people can see things in the print that are impossible to see with the naked eye.
Case in point — the two have issued a “Where's Waldo” kind of challenge to see if people can spot some minute details. Try to find the Edmonton Eskimos sticker a spoilsport left.
You can see the print for yourself on the second floor of the Studio 12 Loft at 126 James Street North during Supercrawl, on Sept. 14 and 15. The exhibit runs from 7:30 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday, and noon until 9 p.m. on Saturday.

But that's just the tip of the James Street iceberg this weekend. With 48 musical acts, 14 performers and countless art installations, there's an insane amount happening at Supercrawl.
Here's a look at some other events to keep in mind as you wander around downtown Hamilton.
Because there just isn't enough entertainment happening on James Street proper, there's also some on the GO Train heading into Hamilton.
Hamilton singer Terra Lightfoot will be playing on the 6:35 train from Union Station that arrives in Hamilton at 7:30 p.m.
Riders will be on Art Train Conductor No. 9, a mobile public art project developed by No.9: Contemporary Art and the Environment, Metrolinx and artists Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins.
An interesting fact — Lightfoot's grandmother played on the entertainment car on the VIA rail train going from Toronto to Montreal from 1964 to 1967.
It wouldn't be an Art Crawl without a food drive.
The Art Gallery of Hamilton's Design Annex has opened its doors to house organizer Matt Jelly's food drive for Art Crawl.
Crawlers are again being asked to bring non-perishable food, hygienic items, diapers and anything else families might need to the annex at 118 James Street North.
Since April, over 2,000 pounds of food has been donated to the needy through Art Crawl, along with $1,500.
Radio host Jamie “Gunner” Smith will be hosting a live radio show from Homegrown Hamilton with Jamie Tennant, program director at CMFU.
The two will be on air from 1 p.m. until 8 p.m. Saturday, on 93.3, CMFU.
Expect some off the cuff interviews with artists and musicians — last year, members of Broken Social Scene wandered into the show and were interviewed on the spot.
What's even better than an everyday circus? A high wire circus. With fire.
Circus Orange will be performing at the intersection James Street North and Wilson Street.
Their shows are built on an integration of circus, dance, acting and aerial arts with fire, pyrotechnics and special effects.
Here's the entire Supercrawl schedule.

As the festival promises to be busy, GO Transit will be running extra GO Train service on Sept. 14 and 15.
People traveling to and from Hamilton can take the special Lakeshore West GO Trains or regular GO train and bus service serving Hamilton GO Centre, located just blocks away from Supercrawl at the corner of James Street South and Hunter.
One special Toronto-bound train will run on Friday night, leaving the Hamilton GO Centre at 12:20 a.m. and heading back to Toronto.
Saturday festival-goers can take a special GO Train from Union Station at 6:20 p.m. that arrives in Hamilton at 7:42 p.m.
The return trip will leave the Hamilton GO Centre at 12:20 a.m. that night.
