FullDome Film: Seeing! A Photon's Journey Across Space, Time and Mind

Ride a photon across the galaxy to your mind's eye and experience how we see.  “SEEING!” follows a photon’s creation and journey across the galaxy to a young stargazer’s eye. The viewer followsthe photon into the girl’s eye, learning the structures of the eye and their functions, prior to taking a ride on the optic nerve. 

Seeing uses hemispheric 2D and 3D animations and video to teach how human vision works. Imagery from all over the world including humanity, landscapes, skyscapes, wildlife and of space will be the backdrop for photo-realistic animations, which will be used to create a story of a photons’ journey through the eye and its conversion to an electro-chemical impulse that then travels the neuro pathways of the brain to the various centers that create the image the brain sees.
