Antarctica: Stereoscopic & Monoscopic Panoramas for VR

Online VR technologies have come a long way recently, so I’m finally getting around to embedding some 360º stereoscopic and monoscopic panoramas that I shot during several adventures in Antarctica (see also my media art documentation.)  These images are viewable using Google Cardboard or compatible viewer on a mobile device in stereoscopic 3D*, or...

Mawson’s Bunk

Computational Photography & Photogrammetry in action: in the service of a story. A mood piece about Douglas Mawson’s bunk – as he may have woken up to see it in the Antarctic summer – apart from the 100+ years of change that subsequently accumulated. A kind of icy re-imagining of...

Antarctic 360º Video, VR, Panoramas and Photogrammetry

With recent developments in 360º video and VR, it is now possible for me to revisit a great range of material I have accumulated over the last 15 years of Antarctic-related visualisation research: these range from work I have done with Frank Hurley’s stereoscopic glass plates (which I commenced in...

Computational Ocean (2016)

Computational Ocean is a visualisation derived from my work on Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. It includes global ocean data visualisations deriving from the GEBCO dataset, global Sea Surface Height Anomaly (SSHA) and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) datasets, as well as synthetic FFT-based ocean simulations. These are works-in-progress to create new and...

Oculus Rift Experiments

A few experiments (more soon) with Oculus Rift: EXPERIMENT 1: An afternoon and evening faffing around with the Oculus Rift DK1 and Unity 3D, getting a first very rough sketch of my ‘Mawson’s Huts Antarcica VR experience’ working – a test-bed for future work in virtual heritage visualisation. The technology/software...
