05:00 PM The Swiss Touch: Exploring Digital Utopia | in partnership with Presence Switzerland and Swiss Touch USA 

AR and VR technologies have pushed forward the limits of self-immersion and entertainment, but continue to be experienced individually. By contrast, the 360 degree full-dome format allows audiences to share a collective, sensory exposure to immersive art and storytelling.

From Buckminster Fuller’s original vision to the Arctic Dome at Coachella, from the counterculture of the 1960’s and early 1970’s to 2018, the dome holds strong as a communal space for gathering together and sharing.

Join us for this evening event, part of HUBweek 2017, to share in some of the cutting-edge uses of the dome-as-viewing platform. David G. Rabkin, Artist Invader and Former Director of the Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science Boston, will host a panel representing various facets of digital art, discussing explorations of a digital utopia. The panelists will also showcase their work with visual support from the Swiss Touch Table.
