Dr Peter Morse has worked at the forefront of fulldome and stereoscopic cinema in Australia for over 15 years. He is a post-doctoral research fellow at the Laboratory for Innovation in Galleries, Libraries, Archives (iGLAM), NIEA, UNSW and a doctoral research fellow with the Computational Geophysics Group, Earth Sciences, University of Tasmania.

Big screens give us new ways of exploring big datasets and displaying them in a wide variety of contexts. Peter Morse will give an overview of the visualisation processes behind the Pausiris Mummy (commissioned for the opening of MONA in 2011) and applications in Digital Heritage and Fulldome visualisation, using a variety of data sources and technologies. Scientific insights and visual aesthetics can mutually inform each other, enriching how we interrogate and understand data.
