Wisdome in Gothenburg will be Sweden’s biggest visualisation dome. Here we aim to make complex science accessible to all with immersive 3D experiences in 8K resolution.
Upcoming dome productions
The dome productions will make use of various perspectives and data to explain how the world works. All the content is based on science and mankind’s technological advances – prominent research that has been crucially important to how we view the world.
Making Magic 3D
Anything at all can happen in the magical world of visual effects. Making Magic shares insights into how visual effects are created for film and computer games – and how they are influenced by the laws of nature that govern the real world. With Peter Stormare as our guide, we discover how effects are created, from mathematical equations to powerful explosions.
Space is inconceivably vast. With Eva Röse as narrator, we set off on a journey further out into space than mankind has ever been before. We start in our own solar system and head all the way out to the Big Bang. Everything we get to see is based on real data obtained through mankind’s technological advances and many years of research.
Accompany one of our astronauts out among planets, stars and black holes. We undertake unique space journeys in real time with the aid of Open Space, a software for interactive data visualization of all of the known and scientifically plotted universe. Everything you see is real, based on actual data from observations, simulations and space missions.
Universeum’s visualisation dome is part of the national Wisdome project. Wisdome sees Universeum collaborating with four other Swedish science centres: Visualization Center C in Norrköping, Curiosum at Umeå University, Science Center Malmö Museums and the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm. A group of ten universities and research environments are also linked to the project, providing knowledge in the form of research, technology, application and didactics.
The technology and the digital presentations have been made possible by means of a jubilee donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. In 2017, in connection with the foundation’s centenary celebrations, Wisdome received a donation of SEK 150 million to fund the project. SEK 100 million of this went towards visualisation technology at the five sites, while SEK 50 million was allocated for production of dome presentations at Visualization Center C.
