Multiverse is an interactive galactic simulator and live visuals environment. It is a 3D map of the local extra-galactic space around the Milky Way, out to a radius of 100 million light years. The program features high-resolution images and information for 360 galaxies (as of June 2015) positioned at their actual sky coordinates. Multiverse also features a solar system visualizer with planets & moons moving according to their actual orbital parameters. The environment can be navigated with a 3D joystick, a touch screen, and a Leap Motion controller, allowing control with hand gestures. The environment also has special effects that can be synced to a beat, as well as video mixing capability, making it ideal for live audio-visual performance.
Multiverse is created with TouchDesigner software. Multiverse is a rapidly evolving Work in Progress since its inception in March 2014.
In August 2014 I was interviewed and an article was written about the project. The story was picked up by newspapers across Canada, including the Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun, Toronto Star, and over a dozen other publications.
