      DANCEROOM SPECTROSCOPY is a Semifinalist in the $200,000 GE FOCUS FORWARD Filmmaker Competition. View more Semifinalist films at https://vimeo.com/groups/focusforwardfilms/albums/6362. For good and for ill, modern science is increasingly impacting our lives and our planet by its ability to control the invisible world of atoms, molecules and energy. Dr. David Glowacki, a practicing chemical physicist, sci-artist and inventor of the dS technology system, reveals the challenges he faces in attempting to raise people's awareness that realities we cannot see are just as real and potent as those we can. Director: Nathan Hughes Producer: Jacob Parish http://smallstorytellers.com/ http://danceroom-spec.com/

          http://www.danceroom-spec.com Human Chaperones: Interactively Sampling Dynamical Pathways On Protein Energy Landscapes This video shows an interactive Molecular Dynamics simulation of 10-Alanine peptide solvated by 8,296 explicit water molecules. The video was made using an integrated hardware/software system which interfaces the danceroom Spectroscopy platform with the OpenMM software library. 10-Alanine is composed of Carbon (purple), Nitrogen (green), Oxygen (red), and Hydrogen (yellow). Depth Sensors interpret the players' bodies as energy fields, which are rendered on-screen for them to see. Using their 'fields', the players can interactively chaperone a real-time molecular dynamics simulation, guiding the peptide's movements, pushing it along dynamical pathways that would otherwise take a much longer time to simulate. This video shows a sequence where the players use their "fields" to compress the peptide, forming a looped "necklace" shape, and then they stretch the peptide apart. Note that water molecules are simulated, but not normally rendered. In this video, water's hydrogen and oxygen atoms are colored blue and green. Development work has been carried out by Michael O'Connor, James Price, Gaetano Calabro, Simon McIntosh-Smith, Philip Tew, Thomas Mitchell, Joseph Hyde, David P. Tew, David Coughtrie, and David Glowacki. Support for this work has been provided by the EPSRC, the University of Bristol, the Watershed Digital Media Centre (Bristol), The Royal Society of Chemistry, Arts Council England, NVIDIA, and The Royal Society. Original track "Hemosphere" was composed by musician Lee J. Malcolm using dynamics data obtained from the molecular dynamics simulation shown in the video. for more information, contact Dr. David Glowacki, or visit www.danceroom-spec.com

            Hidden Fields interprets dancers as fields whose movement creates ripples and waves in an invisible sea of energy. During a performance dancers literally step into, wander through, and play in the atomic nano-world. Hidden Fields is built from the danceroom Spectroscopy (dS) technology. By fusing 3d imaging and rigorous molecular dynamics, dS transforms people into energy fields. As you move and interact with the molecular simulations, your energy fields trigger sounds and images. The net result is an ever-changing set of immersive real-time images and sounds: a unique, exciting experience, and a truly remarkable spectacle of art and science. The collaborators who created dS & Hidden Fields are listed at http://danceroom-spec.com/people/ For more information, visit http://www.danceroom-spec.com
