The professors, who included Oscar winning documentary maker Ben Shedd, discussed the technical aspects of ‘frameless’ film making and the use of dome cinema for documenting cultural heritage. As a further example they showed a short piece produced at NTU, in which the dome is transformed into a circus marquee with a trapeze artist swinging overhead. This piece forms part of an exhibition, currently running at NTU in Singapore, entitled Fellini: Circus of Light, which celebrates the work of the legendary Italian film director Frederico Fellini. Another piece, Vishwaroop, produced by school chair Vibeke Sorenson, and, like Samskara, inspired by Hindu philosophy, turned the dome into a fractal kaleidoscope accompanied by sitar and tabla music.
