Festival-goers at Coachella 2017 weekend one were treated to unforgettable experiences both on and off the stage. One of the most buzzed about off-stage experiences was HP’s Antarctic Dome visual art installation, which blew everyone’s mind. The 11,000-square foot Dome was home to some of the most mind-bending, fully-immersive, 360-degree mashup of art, music and technology that left viewers in awe.

In addition to the Antarctic Dome, HP also debut its new lineup of Pavilion laptops. The new devices powered all the interactive experiences in the HP Lounge, where guests could design their own custom bandanas, create shareable art in a 360-degree blackout photo booth and more.

Here’s a peek at what festival goers got to experience on the grounds during Weekend One:

Visual Art Experience at the Antarctic Dome by Android Jones:


The visual component within the dome was developed by creative artist, Android Jones, who created art installations on the Sydney Opera House and the Empire State Building.

Using the pulse of the music and the flow of human movement, the animation sequences projected within the Antarctic Dome are driven by data captured from audio analysis and motion capture, setting a new bar for high fidelity immersion.
