Iconic projections

The Expressions series celebrates art and culture, illustrating how small ideas and simple sounds reap big, booming results in the form of great symphonies, cutting-edge architecture and poignant poetry.

Cosmos projections, meanwhile, transform the dome’s canvas into a giant observatory, taking visitors on an epic adventure as they stand beneath constellations, fly weightlessly across galaxies and touch the face of Mars.

The Nature shows illustrate the interconnectivity and rhythms of the world, from a drop of rain to the beating of a butterfly’s wing as the beauty of land and sea unfolds in a reminder to live in harmony with the environment.
