CAS Talk: My God, It’s Full of Stars! – Fulldome, Histories and Futures

The Computer Arts Society series:

Date and time: Tue, 18 May 2021. 19:00 – 20:00 BST

The panel discusses the histories and futures of Fulldome, a rapidly evolving shared virtual reality environment, with a long history and brighter, higher resolution future. Fulldome is a transdisciplinary instrument for the manifestation of (im)material and imaginary worlds which has been liberated from its STEM agenda to embraces new content producers, audiences and experimental approaches. This shift of perspective has been enabled by the construction of Fulldome environments that support a more dynamic and interactive engagement with audiences, such as the Satosphere in Montreal and the new Market Hall Dome in Plymouth. These 210°+ flat floor spaces provide an alternative to the usual Planetarium stylee 180° tilted tiered seating hemispheres and are increasingly populated by artists, coders, gamers, choreographers, performers, and VJs.
