Snice 2.0 is a muliplayer version of the well known game snake. Snice however is not about collecting cherrys in order to grow, but staying alive as long as possible and traping the other players so they lose the game. Last year we already presented a 4-player version of the game, that runs with Digistar, but this year we’re releasing an 8-player version, that runs on any system!

Domography and high frame rate
I will outline the importance of visual narration. Fulldome by its nature allows many different viewpoints. It is important to understand how the viewer moves their head during each shot and to know what is achievable. In two full dome studies I was able to consider habituation, feelings/perception, perception of focus, quality and rhythm, also presence and immersion. I will show some results and how HFR can support spatial films in their dramaturgy.

The secrets of Gravity
Why do things fall to the ground without magic? The young magician’s apprentice LIMBRADUR is far more interested in the universe than magic spells. He is fascinated by the universe and the laws of nature. So, one night he sneaks into the Albert Einstein Museum, where he meets ALBY X3, a clever but rather quirky robot who knows all about Albert Einstein and his theories. ALBY takes LIMBRADUR on a magical journey of discovery through time and space, during which they not only uncover the secrets of gravity but also learn much about friendship and imagination. For LIMBRADUR and ALBY both have secrets of their own.

From Visual-Music to Fulldome
Surfing between cinema, video-art, expanded and new media forms, sound art, concert or electroacoustic music, visual music started to find a place also in planetariums and other fulldome spaces, to allow new modes of expression. Today, visual-music and fulldome seems to be opening the gate towards a new field where transdisciplinary research-creation would become possible.
