Index is one of many planetarium projection pieces created for a revival of the 1950’s VORTEX show, hosted by The California Academy of Sciences. I had the pleasure of working with several talented artists on the show, including Conor Grebel, Chase Hochstatter, Can Büyükberber, Chris Bjerre and Obscura Digital. Together we created a 20 minute audio-visual experience that plunges the audience through a wide gamut of psychedelic environments. Index focuses primarily on the index of refraction and how it’s applied to simple geometric structures in 3D software to create seemingly advanced formations. The audience is flown through several fractal forms accompanied with a soundscape created by Enternull.
