In 2013, Syinichi Yamamoto was engaged in the project of "The Movements" which focused on visualization of big data.
"The Movements" was created for the spherical display "Geo-Cosmos" installed at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation as part of the permanent exhibition:-
In 2015, 2 years after the completion of "The Movements", he started the production of a 3D fulldome film entitled "The Man from the 9 Dimensions" which was released in 2016 and is been screened at the Dome Theater Gaia at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation ever since. He was in charge of the visualization of scientific concepts about superstring theory in theoretical physics and was also in charge of thevisual direction of the film:-
Science and art have been getting closer in media art scene. Visualization of data and visualization of wave shapes has been actively pursued. As an extension of the above-mentioned 2 projects which focused on data visualization and visualization of scientific concepts, the project of "Noesis" represents philosophical concept visualization which visualizes the concept and thoughts of the origins of Nature, the Universe and all things from the perspective of art.
The whole duration of the work is 30mins with each track having its own theme such as: Each track with total length of 30-min has its own theme such as "view point reversal", "position invalidation", "elemental particle", "time", etc., but on track 04 "Emerging Design", the concept of "trajectory of moments" is featured as the main theme of the project as a whole which follows the trajectory of time.
Dimitris Kontopoulos, a science curator with whom Synichi has been collaborating since 2016 participated in making the concept of this project. Tetsuji Ohno (Intercity-Express) who has continued to collaborate with Synichi helped him to create the sound design of the 8 tracks.
For 3D visualization in high resolution, Seiichi Sega (superSymmetry) also participated in this project and provided not only drawings of computer generated images by physics calculations, but interactive performances using TouchDesigner.
- Premiere screening at MUTEK.JP:
Because the main venue of MUTEK.JP held in 2017 was the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, we decided to create a version of "Noesis" which would be highly optimized to the 3D fulldome system of the Museum’s Dome Theater Gaia, so that viewers can enjoy an audio visual performance of the project under the specifications of the 3D dome system to the fullest extent.
