Atmos Sphaerae uses the poetic beauty of the scientific notation „Lewis structures“ to make visible the atomic composition of the normally invisible molecules in the atmosphere visible. It takes the viewer from the pre Big Bang VOID through the proto-planetary gases, to the life-giving water, the Great Oxygenation Event triggered by photosynthesizing cyanobacteria, to the runaway greenhouse triggered by humans‘ voracious appetite for fossil fuels.


DiMoDA is a pioneering virtual institution dedicated to commissioning, preserving, and exhibiting cutting edge V.R. artworks. It conceived in 2013 by Alfredo Salazar-Caro and William Robertson.
