Wisdome Immersive Exhibit – SXSW 2022

I love geodesic domes. I feel like they are the perfect design maximizing space and resilient through various types of weather. Domes also remind me of space dwellings.

His intended design purpose for geodesic domes was efficient housing for the masses. Overtime, domes have taken shape for other applications, including interactive event facilities!

2022 South by Southwest (SXSW) was the first time I attended this major local event. Even though I’m not comfortable in crowded events and festivals, SXSW had a pop-up event venue I was determined to see. Wisdome Immersive Music & Art Park. This exhibit was temporarily relocated from Los Angeles to Austin for SXSW. Wisdome offered 360 immersion, yoga and soundbath experiences, as well as live music concerts during SXSW!
