Image Gallery: Merging art and science

When meteorologist Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel stepped into the middle of an EF5 tornado re-created in 3-D in a four-story immersive installation at Virginia Tech, his perspective was that of someone 7,000 feet tall. Beneath him was the landscape of Moore, Oklahoma. Around him was the storm that killed 24 people in May 2013.

With support from Virginia Tech’s Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology, a student and faculty team from the Department of Geography and the Center for Geospatial Information Technology (CGIT) created the storm in the Moss Arts Center facility known as the Cube — a highly adaptable space for research and experimentation in immersive environments.
