FULLDOME UK 2012 is a celebration of the Fulldome experience. The event will focus on the use of Fulldome as an artistic medium and will look to highlight the more creative and experimental applications of Fulldome immersive environments, beyond the realm of astronomy education most commonly associated with digital planetariums today. In addition to a programme of talks, presentations and screenings, a highlight of this year’s event will be a focus on realtime and audiovisual perfomances on the Saturday night. Its time to rock the dome people! FULLDOME UK 2012 is becoming the recognised hub and playground for the experimental fulldome arts scene in the UK and internationally. The event mobilises a national and international network of artists and creatives.
This year, FULLDOME UK 2012 has teamed up with the amazing NSC Creative and its coming to The National Space Centre! With Fulldome Live VJ sets, talks with Fulldome industry insiders and a plethora of artistic Fulldome shorts, the festival will be a veritable dome-tastic extravaganza! The event, which is being held on the 16th and 17th November will be the biggest Fulldome festival the UK has ever seen; not only due to the physical size and number of seats in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium but also due to the exceptionally talented array of contributors. The FULLDOME UK 2012 programme will consist of a range of performances, shorts, features and talks by leading fulldome artists and technologists. 2012 is headlined by DJ Food from Ninja Tune and real time Visual Artists / VJs: La Société des arts technologiques [SAT] (Canada), United VJs (Brazil/EU), Immersive (UK) and RFID (UK). For a full schedule please go here. We received more than eighty submissions for our short film competition from all over the world and will be awarding a first prize for “Best in Show” of £500.00. On Saturday night, a well renowned jury of experts will pick the winner!
