Fulldome animation screened at the State of the Arts Festival in LA/*
December 16th, 2013
“Dollhouse Desert”, a collaboration between Karl Baumann, Nicolette G.D and I, was screened last week at the State of the Arts 2013: the Future of Fulldome Festival. The host was the Vortex Immersive Media Dome at L.A. Center Studios. This is my first excursion into the fulldome format, and I found it incredibly fun and challenging.
The unconventional orientation of the spectators translates into a whole new vocabulary for camera motion and field of view. Fulldome is a medium that can both create the visceral impression of swallowing the viewer and offer moments of poetic stillness. “Dollhouse Desert” immerses the spectactor in a surreal mental landscape in which claustrophobia and the call of the void become complimentary affective states that seamlessly alternate.
