Second IX Symposium

The Société des arts technologiques(SAT) kicked off their second IX Symposium at the Biosphere with a special presentation by Allegra Fuller Snyder, daughter of the Biosphere’s architect, Richard Buckminster Fuller.

Allegra spoke about her father’s vision of bringing people together to leverage our extraordinary inventory of collective experiences to create innovate solutions to global issues. In line with this vision, the goal of the SAT in hosting the IX symposium was to connect over 100 cross-disciplinary artists, researchers, and leading technological experts from around the world. Participants demonstrated their newest creations in the 360-degree spherical projection dome, called the “Satosphere” and contemplated future applications for virtual and augmented reality throughout targeted panel discussions.

The Consulate was pleased to facilitate the participation of American keynote speaker and virtual reality pioneer Scott Fisher. The event ended with a presentation of the previous weekend’s Buckython creations to Allegra and the additional symposium participants. You can view photos of the even there.
