IDEAS: Pigments of Imagination

Atkinson Hall

This event is free and open to the public.
RSVP requested to


On Thursday, May 18 at 5 p.m., join the Qualcomm Institute (QI) in UC San Diego's Atkinson Hall for "Pigments of Imagination" by artist, music producer and UC San Diego graduate student Timothy Gmeiner and Stanford University graduate student Eito Murakami.

"Pigments of Imagination" is an interactive virtual reality experience that frames the creative process as a narrative relating the inner-workings of one's unique imagination to the universe around us. It is an observation on the beauty, fear, adventure, sadness and loneliness of self-discovery and the artist's ultimate recognition of process as goal, as told through the story of a small child's journey to the moon. This piece features musical contributions from UCSD's King Britt, Steph Richards, Zach Konick and vocalist Nick Tolford.

Singular VR experiences will be offered in addition to the general presentation.
