“Larger Scale Immersive VR Dome Environments Have the Capacity to Affect Positive Social Outcomes in the Human Consciousness Movement”.  — Pacific Domes, Inc.

What if you could harness the power of people’s sensory inputs and take them on an immersive, multi-sensory journey? Setting the stage for eclectic storytelling performances, the Los Angeles Center Studios Vortex Dome™ is an iconic theatrical projection mapping dome that has been doing just that since 2010.

Cultural Storytelling in a projection mapping dome isn’t something you can experience at home, or, for that matter, something that any flat surface display can deliver. Weaving the magic of storytelling onto the dome’s non-flat surface with awesome visual presentations, a 360° projection mapping dome shapes images that draw audiences from far and wide.

About Ed Lantz, President/CTO of Vortex Immersion Media 
Visionary student of consciousness, Ed Lantz, President/CTO of Vortex Immersion Media, has realized a vision he received years ago. While still in his teens, Ed Lantz had a very clear vision of immersive dome spaces where performers were exploring the quantum ‘inner space movie,’ projecting their consciousness onto the dome, and transporting audiences into inner realms. While still in his youth, Lantz said he once had to choose between art and technology. Now, inside the dome, he’s doing both… “It’s a compelling experience,” he smiles. Visit their site.
