CARBON-X Fulldome Film
xRez Studio’s Eric Hanson has completed an experimental film collaboration with SETI artist-in-residence artist Charles Lindsay, entitled CARBON-X. Designed for the planetarium fulldome format, it was a component of an arts grant program entitled Getting Off The Planet, through Ecoartspace curator Patricia Watts. It premiered at the ISEA 2012 Conference, Machine Wilderness at the Intitute for American Indian Art’s Digital Dome in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Building off of Lindsay’s detailed and otherworldly CARBON series of manipulated carbon dust imbued emulsions, the work uses CGI photogrammetry, particle dynamics, projections, and displacements to create a dimensional view into possible proto-worlds and intellegences, one of the defining characteristics of Lindsay’s CARBON series.
