ARTS Lab at the University of New Mexico is now offering the world's first full-semester course in production techniques for digital multi-projector, hemispheric, immersive full-dome theaters. Developed for students from visual arts and design as well as gaming and scientific visualization, the full-dome course requires students to work in collaborative teams to produce short large-format, immersive digital works. Participants have included university students as well as visiting artists and high school students. Each semester ends with a student screening at the LodeStar Astronomy Center in the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. Student projects have ranged from domed tetris blocks to intriguing artistic abstractions and an interactive domed pong game.
