Immersive Culture In Italy

If you are in Venezia, Italy between September 6 and 11, don’t miss this unique immersive experience with panoramas shot by Luca Vascon and Chiara Masiero Sgrinzatto.

The first Ultra Wide Views exhibition is over. Held at École Polytechnique de Montréal in the context of the Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM) 2009, it was a great success. Thanks to the hard work of  the Vision3D Lab at Université de Montréal; and of Mardigrafe Inc.; and thanks to the infrastructure kindly provided by École Polytechnique de Montréal; and last but not least thanks to the many participating artists.

Panoramic artwork has been shown on two state of the art projecting displays (a 360° cylinder and a high resolution array of projectors) and in the form of two dozens of high resolution giclées. The general public has seen images in a quality never seen before. The developers and artists participating at LGM where inspired and entertained by this display of practical applications of their work.

I look forward to continue collaborations with these artists and partners on more bleeding edge panoramic projects; and I look forward to LGM 2010 hoping that exhibiting art along the conference will become a tradition.
