Summary: In 2015 Fulldome.pro approached the US-based visionary artist Android Jones about bringing his work to the dome. Over the next two years the animators at 360ART, our Chiang Mai studio, spent many months working with Android to produce a dome film called Samskara. It has been shown at festivals around the world and amazed audiences. After this initial success we worked with Android Jones to create an interactive version of Samskara, in which the ‘player’ must solve geometric puzzles in 3D virtual reality in order to unlock the next scene in of the game. Android has also been busy working on a live painting application for virtual reality called Microdose VR. In Microdose VR the ‘painter’ uses a VR headset and controllers to create amazing scenes using brushes and palettes inspired by Android Jones’ artwork. If you replace the headset with a dome, Microdose VR becomes something that can be shared with an audience, and the painter becomes a performer.
