StellrLume Domes are the Centenary of Canberra Science Art Commission Works and form part of the StellrScope Exhibition at Questacon.
The StellrLume Domes are two hemispherical projections based in an installation setting that allows people to interact with the display delivering content to the viewer(s). An overhead Kinect depth camera relays informa on about objects (e.g., hands) placed over the hemisphere and ‘virtual shadow’ data is used to mask one video stream projected onto the inside surface of the hemisphere to reveal a second different video s tream. In eff ect, people
can cast shadows onto the hemisphere yet, instead of causing an absence of illumina on, these shadows reveal a new layer of imagery and form the basis of the StellrScope visual narrative, reflecting wheat innovation over the century.
