AlloSphere – Artists, scientists and engineers working together to better understand quantum mathematics

AlloSphere is a 360-Degree Virtual Reality Chamber that helps scientists understand quantum mathematics and complex microscopic data in a truly revolutionary way.

Imagine if a group of physicists could stand inside of an atom and watch and hear the electrons spin. Or if a team of surgeons could fly into the brain and see tissues as landscape and hear blood vessels as music.

The AlloSphere is a unique, one-of-a-kind artistic and scientific visualization instrument and the culmination of 24 years of Professor JoAnn Kuchera-Morin’s creativity and research efforts in media systems and studio design.

Artistic and scientific installations allow researchers to fly through the cortex of a brain to see which regions are interacting with each other and hearing sounds of densities pitched differently. Nano scientists can understand more about mathematical equations by hearing quantum flow.

Beautifully visualized microscopic data allow scientists to find the bounding notes between atoms and listen, as each atom has a different sound signature.
