DARK is a fulldome movie that explains and explores the nature of Dark Matter, the missing 80% of the mass of the Universe. The search for Dark Matter is the most pressing astrophysical problem of our time – the solution to which will help us understand why the Universe is as it is, where...


Ice-Free Antarctica: Visualization (2012)

A 3-minute visualisation of the ice-free regions of Antarctica commissioned by the Australian Antarctic Division for the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting XXXV. These regions are home to the terrestrial biodiversity of the Antarctic continent, but cover only 0.41% of the continental territory – the rest is ice. Of the 50850km2...


Syn[a]: Visualizing Biometric Data from a Musical Performance

In December 2011 the Syn[a] Group, in concert with AARnet and the TSO, ran a 5 day workshop at the University of Tasmania Conservatorium of Music, where we visualised the biometric data of musical performers and transmitted this over high-bandwidth networks (AARNet) in stereoscopic 3D, creating an immersive augmented telepresence...


Ocean (2009)

Ocean (2009) from Peter Morse on Vimeo. A visualisation of the global ocean derived from the GEBCO dataset. Rendered at 4k Fulldome resolution. This is an excerpt from ongoing work – there is so much to do with this and I have only splashed the surface of the data. The...


Visualising GEBCO: A new way of seeing the global oceans (2009)

A short overview of work-in-progress visualising the GEBCO dataset (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans) The visualisation involved developing a derived dataset from GEBCO in reference to WGS’84, where we have effectively ‘removed’ the entire Earth – all the continents, islands and geology above and below sea level. What remains...
