Lightning in a bottle, in a dome within a domeMay 5, 2015

In May 2015 thousands of visitors to the Lightning In a Bottle festival had the opportunity to experience the art renowned digital fantasy artist Android Jones come to life in SAMSKARA, a stunning fulldome collaboration with FullDomeLab. The immersive art experience was a hit at the festival, drawing big crowds, and long queues, to the the Museum Of Visionary Artists gallery, a temporary 60 foot dome that housed a 15 foot fulldome theater.

High quality fulldome art in at an outdoor festival would not have been possible only a few years earlier. Mobile dome technology, coupled with fast, accurate and automatic projection calibration from made this a reality.

Lightning in a Bottle (LIB) is a family-friendly, transformational festival incorporating electronic dance music, experimental and folk music, art installations, presentations, demonstrations, yoga and meditation. The festival began in 2000 as a private party in Southern California and is now an annual public festival held around the Memorial Day long weekend on the California Central Coast. The sold-out 2015 festival ran over five days and attracted over 20,000 attendees.
