Categories

  • Geo-Cosmos Category

    For this category, we solicit video works designed for screening and viewing from multiple viewpoints on Geo-Cosmos, the signature exhibition of Miraikan.

    What is Geo-Cosmos?
    Geo-Cosmos is the signature exhibition of Miraikan. Geo-Cosmos originated from former astronaut and Miraikan Executive Director MOHRI Mamoru’s desire to share the glittering appearance of Earth as viewed from space with as many people as possible. Because viewers can see the same video images from several different angles, and there is no single “front” or “head-on” view, the video image platform is free of the restrictions of two-dimensional video, and opens up an endless range of video expression.

    You can see the works that won the past Geo-Cosmos Content Contest organized by Miraikan
  • Dome Theater Category

    For this category, we solicit video works designed for screening in Dome Theater GAIA at Miraikan.

    What is Dome Theater GAIA?
    Dome Theater GAIA is a spherical video system that can project full-dome images in 4K resolution in both 2D and 3D onto a dome-shaped screen with a diameter of 15.24 m and 23° angle of inclination.
