Description

ATLAS in silico ⎯ An engaging fusion of dynamic media, art, emerging technologies and pioneering science. Web: http://www.atlasinsilico.net ATLAS in silico is a physically interactive and immersive virtual reality installation that makes use of emerging technologies in dynamic media, 3D computer graphics, computer vision and spatialized multichannel interactive audio to allow visitors to experience the new science of metagenomics and discoveries from the Global Ocean Survey in a way that is accessible, playful and yet meaningful for people of all ages. The Global Ocean Survey is a recent pioneering voyage of discovery circumnavigating the Earth’s oceans, the results of which give us a new picture of life on Earth, and have potentially far-reaching implications for topics of interest to the general public such as climate change and biodiversity [http://camera.calit2. net/about-camera/GOS.php]. Exploring this luminous, colorful and dynamic 3D world allows participants to reveal relationships within a mixture of biological, social and environmental data that spans from the molecular (nano scale of protein molecules) to the global (social and environmental). Created by a vibrant art-science collaboration, the 19 member team includes new media artists, composers, computer scientists, and bioinformatics researchers. Web: Web: http://www.atlasinsilico.net
