Audiovisual piece for domes – 15 minutes, 2014 

Nimbes is an early Fulldome work by acclaimed French artist Joanie Lemercier, which explores the ontology of observation and its relationship to cosmogony, notions of intelligence and individuality. In this 15 minute piece you can see the universe as it comes into being, seeing emergent structures, architectures and narratives on a macrocosmic scale.
