Shown is a Cinema Snowglobe invented and developed over the past year at The Workshop Residence, by artists JD Beltran and Scott Minneman. This 21st century snowglobe features moving images, film, and video. And fog.
The Cinema Snowglobe was featured at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art during the museum's closing weekend in May 2013 in collaboration with "The Making Of..." project by The Kitchen Sisters. Due to the magic of interactive technology (patent pending), they are activated just like the old ones - you pick it up and shake it, and a scene appears and unfolds before your eyes. Cinema Snowglobes are available with various cinematic scenes available for purchase, or you can commission your own custom content with your choice of imagery and footage with prices beginning at $350. Clients have included museums who provide the virtual experience of a time-lapse of their new museum being built, or even a virtual experience of the sparkling San Francisco Bay Lights project on the Bay Bridge.
