Last month I attended the 2014 IMERSA Summit in Denver, hosted by the Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS). IMERSA (http://www.imersa.org) is a group of crazy people who like to create deeply immersive videos for fulldome, where “fulldome” is generally understood to mean “planetariums and similar dome theaters with digital projection systems”. “Deeply immersive” means that, because the imagery is all around you, your brain thinks that you’re really there, flying around. If you’ve ever seen a fulldome show, or maybe you’ve seen an IMAX Dome film, which is similar, then you know what I mean.
I was there because I believe that the best medium for my art is as immersive entertainment, presented in fulldome and/or IMAX dome.
