Join us for the closing reception of ISM Hexadome with a live performance by Pierce Warnecke.

For one night only, experience an exclusive live set to celebrate the closing of the ISM Hexadome. This premiere live performance will take place in the ISM Hexadome, an immersive 360° environment exhibiting original, commissioned works through spatialized sound and projected visuals in an enveloping, architectural space.

Endless Growth (Data Decay v3) is an audiovisual performance by Pierce Warnecke using data to illustrate dynamic ecosystems. Generated from data on population growth, pollution emissions, resource extraction, and global GDPs, this work questions how unbounded growth of humanity is incompatible with our finite planet—it may ultimately result in saturation and irreversible damage. Data Decay is an ongoing series of abstract sonification and visualization works, generated from datasets to convey interconnecting relationships through an audiovisual language.
