We’re pleased to announce the works selected for the 2012 reel. Jurors in the California Academy of Sciences’ Morrison Planetarium and the University of New Mexico’s ARTS Lab worked into the wee hours to review hours of content to select the best works. Congratulations to all the finalists and a dome-sized thanks to everyone who worked so hard with so much talent and passion to submit their works. Domie Awards will be announced after the premiere.…

Perhaps it's a little thing, but for me it's not: Shared words are the basis of shared understanding and a culture. In our case, we can't seem to agree on our spelling of fulldome/full-dome/full dome after more than ten years. (Or we're lousy spellers... :)
Toward creating shared usage - or at least some peer-pressure and spelling hints- I set up another spelling poll on the Yahoo dist list:… Continue

Jonathan Strawn (aka JonnyFlash) gathered the gang and shot a bit of our National Science Foundation research into fulldome graphics and interfaces. I posted them thinking some might get a kick out of them.

If you haven't gotten the news (and how could you when there's a communicator like me in the mix???) we're not doing a DomeFest this year. Instead, we're working to build more support and a greater program for 2011 when we'll reconvene in September.
For DF11, we'll continue curating the Juried Show and 'Making of' programs with the same philosophy of creating programs addressing production techniques, story/content innovation,… Continue

I'm writing to spread the word:
Eurographics 2010 is highlighting fulldome as a program area. The conference is hosted by Linköping University's Norrköping Viz Lab,the birthplace of the fabulous Uniview domeware. The C-Center will have a research dome on-line by the conference start.
Papers are due soon: 11 December 09.

I'm tweeting my little brain out (well, it's a lot for my attitudes toward such things) over at http://www.twitter.com/domefest
Okay, some of those tweets, may not be so informative, but it's where I'm pushing any news I can find time to print. Have a looksy. Meanwhile, a couple notes:
-About 45 entries to the jury. They're long and big: Most 4k, average length 4-min. Most reliable… Continue

My inbox has been ringing off the hook for months with DF09 inquiries. Thank you and please accept my apologies for being unresponsive. It’s been a very very busy and interesting year here at the ARTS Lab.
So here’s where we are:
We’ve been scheming and dreaming about DomeFest 2009 and have a lot of special programs planned. And we’ve been working to find the right time to gather ( and lots of partners to arrange).
We’ve finally landed upon… Continue

At ARTS Lab, I'm always blathering on about fulldome as not only an important medium* outright, but also as a launch-point for learning to design for all the crazy places and ways we're splaying pixels beyond the 4:3 and 16:9 frames and personal-to-multiplex display scales. On that point, check out this Times Square monstrosity:…
