Fulldome Artist in Residence: Call for Applications | The Fulldome Blog.
Vortex Immersion Media is now accepting applications for its first international artist in residence program located in Los Angeles, California.

Artists will receive hands on training provided by our Creative Director, access to the dome to work on projects and test concepts, one on one consultation and a public presentation of their experience at the end of the residency. The Vortex Immersion Media fulldome artist in residence will run June 1 – 30, 2014.
Someone from Sentient should do this!!!!!
The Art of Astrophysics.
Astrophysicists try to share the mysteries of the Universe around us in a clear and understandable fashion, but we don’t always succeed. It’s a hard challenge – the wonders of the Solar System, the Galaxy, and the ever expanding Cosmos demand more of our imaginations than can be captured by numbers in a table or terms in an equation. However, a work of art can uniquely inspire us to look closely, to dream freely, to understand openly – anything from the smallest curiosity to the biggest discovery.
So, we’re asking members of the MIT community to create works of art that help us visualize our Universe and how we observe it. Whether you’re a photographer or a poet, a crafter or a coder, a musician or a moviemaker, we want you to use your talents and creativity to illuminate the beauty of astrophysical results. Please consider participating in this year’s Art of Astrophysicscompetition during MIT’s 2014 Independent Activities Period (IAP), sponsored by the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research.
