Dome Club Nashville - Fractals

Dome Club Nashville - Fractals

Dome Club Nashville is is a monthly event showcasing immersive programs and artistic experiences designed to envelop visitors within the unique fulldome planetarium environment.

What’s fulldome? Fulldome refers to technologies that cover the entire surface area of a planetarium dome with graphics. Seated within the 63-foot diameter dome at the Sudekum Planetarium’s Judith Payne Turner Theatre, viewers are surrounded by visuals in front, above, and even behind them. Unlike the rectangular frame of a TV or movie screen, the dome allows visitors to feel like they’re part of the show. Powerful surround sound adds to the effect as well, creating an eye-opening viewing experience.

September: Fractals Fractals are fascinating patterns that appeal to everyone – scientists, artists, children and more. Even if you’ve never heard of the word “Fractal”, you already know lots about fractals, since you’re surrounded by them in the natural world. Shapes such as trees, rivers, mountains and clouds are all examples of fractals, and we’ll explore some of these in this show.

What is a fractal anyway? A fractal is a never ending pattern. It’s a shape that is made up of little copies of itself. These shapes keep repeating again and again at smaller scales. This property is called “Self-Similarity.”
