A research and performance space that provides access to 360° full dome projections and immersive sound amplification, set up at the Unlearning Center of blueFactory, in Fribourg.
A dialogue, a dynamic and a network around new immersive technologies and reflections on the nature of reality and its perception, linear and circular narratives, the space of the audience/user (interactive performances) are the initial intentions. The DOME will also host the development of REVES's second phase, which will take place beginning 2002. REVES project will implement "TANG", an instrument for live virtual reality performance immersion focused on real-time sharing of a "solitary" VR experience with an audience within the dome.
TANG will be made available as part of the DÔME structure for research and experimentation, as well as for discussion, discovery and brainstorming on possible activities, for children and young people.
The DÔME is a space that allows for the circulation of energies, a provision of structures and technological means within an exhibition space to experiment and share with other artists or with a public of all ages. It is a space where the micro is reflected in the macro and vice versa.
Curiosity and creativity are exploited, to dream, or to train the senses. Virtual reality is not understood as a reality "in effect", but "of effects" and as such it is part of our reality and our creative tools. The DÔME is therefore also a place to learn relate to technology, to understand its limits and potential.
