Jeweled Net of the Vast Invisible is an installation that features a continuously running multi-channel video projection in a twenty-foot high, 140-degree panorama and acoustic environment. In this newest version, viewers will fly through a simulation of dark matter in the process of evolving from its random and diffuse distribution immediately after the Big Bang to the clustered cosmic web of the modern universe, all while experiencing an immersive sonic environment of music inspired by those spaces.
Jeweled Net of the Vast Invisible was created by Jim Cogswell (Stamps School of Art & Design), Stephen Rush (School of Music, Theatre and Dance), Gregory Tarlé (Department of Physics), Brian Nord (Fermilab) along with graduate students Jason Eaton (Computer Science) and Simon Alexander-Adams (Music, Theater, and Dance). Produced by Tom Bray, Converging Technologies Consultant at the University of Michigan. Funded by the University of Michigan MCubed Project.
