This Mind-Bending Audiovisual Dome At Coachella Made Everyone Lose Their Shit [Watch]

March 2, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: adzvswdvm.

first_imgThis year’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival offered no shortage of entertainment value, including performances by Kendrick Lamar, Radiohead, Lady Gaga, award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, and many more, along with various art installations and other festival grounds fare. But perhaps the most awe-inspiring sensory display at the popular California desert event was “Chrysalis,” an 8-minute psychedelic experience projected onto a massive geodesic dome. The 360° audiovisual spectacle starts with a “Shamanistic rite-of-passage ceremony,” and embarks from there on a breathtaking cosmic odyssey.Obscura Digital, the firm responsible for the exhibit, is a San Francisco-based creative technology studio that orchestrates entertaining, informative, and educational experiences with interactive installations, large-format architectural projections, and immersive environments that generate a sense of awe and inspiration for live audiences. Thanks to the Obscura, you can watch footage of the entire light show below (though, of course, a conventional video can’t really come close to capturing the full Antarctic Dome experience):You can also watch Obscura Digital’s official recap video from the installation, which gives some added perspective on the awesome scale of the spectacle and the dumbstruck reactions of its thoroughly satisfied patrons:As the project’s Creative Director Joshua Pipic explained to Vice, “The power of it is that it’s not just a VR headset—it giant and powerful and really takes up all the space in front of your eyes. People overuse the word ‘immersive,’ but it’s the most immersive thing I’ve ever worked on.” And when Pipic says this is the most “immersive” project he’s worked on, you can trust it’s coming from a reliable source: Obscure has designed and brought to life innovative audiovisual exhibitions on the facades of such iconic structures Empire State Building, St. Peter’s Basilica, The Sydney Opera House, and more.

She splashed $1.845 million on the house, which marks a new record for the street.It was one of two mirror-image houses at the address, which were owned and built by family business Evolution Builders. The second property is now for sale.Ray White Benowa agent Carita Lanham also facilitated an offer-market sale recently.She contacted the owners of a Benowa Waters house, who she knew were considering selling, on behalf of a prospective buyer.The contract was signed the day it was inspected.“It was basically a buyer I was working with off my database,” she said.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa11 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days ago“They lived locally as well and they were just wanting to go from canal to main river.“I think because they knew what they wanted after taking them through, they put in an offer and bought it that afternoon.”The $1.5 million sale went unconditional last week.Property records show the Cabana Blvd house last sold in 2002 for $678,00. One of the houses at 36 Avanti St, Mermaid Waters, (left) was snapped up in an off-market sale.HOUSE hunters aren’t wasting any time chasing the home of their dreams, and they are willing to spend a hefty price to get it.There has been a spate of secret sales across the Gold Coast in recent weeks — many of which have been negotiated in a matter of days.In some cases the sellers had considered listing their properties but never gone ahead.It was not until they were offered a price too good to refuse that they agreed to hand over the keys.Ray White Broadbeach Waters agent Justin Haynes recently handled an off-market sale at Mermaid Waters.After showing a local buyer from the agency’s database the multistorey Avanti St property, the deal was done in days.“What appealed to them was the locality to the beach, I think it’s about 600m to 700m,” he said.“She loved it and in two days had an offer.” [email protected]last_img read more

Jacobsen a defensive rock for UW

September 17, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: mmfausynf.

first_imgWhile she only has two assists and one shot on goal for the season, junior midfielder Erin Jacobsen hangs her hat on tough defense and held some of the Big Ten’s most prolific scorers in check this year.[/media-credit]As easy as it is at times to take the word of statistics asthe whole story and the undeniable truth, it’s still very difficult for numbers to tell the complete story.That’s what UW women’s soccer head coach Paula Wilkins wouldtell you in respect to junior midfielder Erin Jacobsen.Through 15 games this season, the only stats to Jacobsen’sname are two assists and eight shots, with one being on target.But that would hardly describe Jacobsen’s value to thesecond-place Badgers. Wilkins has, on multipleoccasions, called Jacobsen the team’s “biggest unsung hero” and a criticalcomponent of a Wisconsin defense that kept opposing team’s scoreless for 930minutes – a program record.More of a defensive midfielder, Jacobsen has yet to miss agame for the Badgers after two and half seasons with the team and hassucceeded in making things difficult for opponents in the middle of the pitchover that stretch.“I think anytime we need to have somebody shutdown theopposing midfield or deal with the pressure in the midfield, Erin is the onethat does,” Wilkins said. “She can cover a lot of ground, she has an amazingwork rate and the biggest thing is that she can shut down some of the bestplayers in the Big Ten – Christine Nairn and Vanessa DiBernardo.”Nairn, of Penn State, and DiBernardo, of Illinois, have acombined 14 goals on the year and are two of the most explosive playersin the Big Ten. The two were largely quiet when Jacobsen commandedthe center of the pitch, as DiBernardo was only able to squeeze off one shot,while Nairn was able to send three on target, but remained scoreless.Jacobsen’s play at the midfield is reminiscent of a safetyin football, although she’s not the last line of defense. She repeatedly interceptspasses and, upon doing so, can quickly determine a way to begin a surgingcounterattack. If an opposing player gets behind her, she catches up and puts astopper on any threat that may have been.That effort has been crucial for the Badger “D,” which hasallowed just eight goals on the year, and four in the run of play.When asked to describe Jacobsen’s style of play – whether itbe offensive or defensive – freshman defender Catie Sessions, as well asWilkins, offered words such as “sneaky” and “hiding,” someone who can wait onthe edge of action and wait for the opportune moment to pounce.“She’s really sneaky – all of a sudden somebody will beturning (with the ball) and [Jacobsen] will win the ball and be running theother way,” Sessions said.“She hides behind the midfield, so anything that pops out, she’s able to get a shot on goal or stop the counterattack,” Wilkins said ofJacobsen.Earlier in the season, when Wisconsin had allowed five goalsin four matches, defending set pieces had been a major concern for the Badgers.Since then, however, the team has bottled up that threat, having not allowed agoal off of a set piece since, and part of that development can be attributedto Jacobsen’s marksmanship.“She always tracks players that are running through the boxand makes sure that if somebody’s running through that we get someone on herright away,” Sessions said.Jacobsen’s commitment to the team, though, is one of herqualities that stand out more than others. Not only has the Wheaton, Ill. nativenever missed a game for the Badgers, but as a freshman, she also elected tograduate high school early in order to join the team a semester early.“Ever since I got here I’ve been very committed to this,”Jacobsen said. “I mean, it’s what I’ve always wanted to do ever since I waslittle, was play college soccer.”“I’m all for it, I’m always committed to it.”A member of Wilkins’ first recruiting class at Wisconsin in2008, which ranked 21st in the nation, Jacobsen’s arrival helped spark a changein the team’s culture which helped Wilkins’ efforts in implementing hercoaching philosophy and turning it into the upstart program it is today. The coach was high in her praise of Jacobsen.“Her athleticism, technical ability and her work rate,that’s all helped change the culture of the program, and so the tenacious stuffand the competitive stuff, when she came in it was definitely something that weneeded in our midfield, and she’s really been an unsung hero and stalwart forus.”last_img read more
