Ethan Bach

“An entrepreneur with an eye on the future’s future, Ethan Bach and his crew specialize in experimentation with digital media and virtual reality — projected in domes, across walls and on interactive screens — in his search for the next big thing in visual technology. And as the guiding light at two startups — the media studio Alt Ethos Ltd. and Denver Arts + Technology Advancement, a nonprofit that provides residencies for new-media artists — Bach is interested in connecting with audiences through mind-blowing imagery and technological tricks of light.” – Denver Westword

Previously Bach served as Principal Investigator for a DoD grant developing interactivity for fulldome and a research associate for a National Science Foundation grant developing tools and content for fulldome environments in his former position as the Digital Dome Manager at the Institute of American Indian Arts. In two and a half years he developed five dome courses, an artist in residence program, curated several art shows, and created vDome with Charles Veasey. vDome was one of the world’s first software for the digital dome that runs off a single computer and allows for easy plug and play, VJing, interactive art, and gaming.
